SMWS 46.82 – A journey from light to dark

Ah, an old one! 26 years old Glenlossie, obviously coming from the Old & Dignified category, and coming from a refill ex-bourbon hogshead again. A good change from the light drams we had before this one.

Nose

Vanilla, some sort of old Madeira, almost liquorous, light spices.

Palate

Sweet all over, prunes, some chocolate, adding water lets some spices get out, very light yet profound in some sort of an unplaceable way.

Finish

Quite a low key finish yet lasting, dates, plums.

Comments

An interesting dram, but at this price point (£144) and with this finish, I’m afraid that even though it was good, it’s a pass for me.
