“91/100 (= brillant whisky) nose 22 tone fancies one can almost detect a distant hint of smoke..no doubting he spice and less than brilliant oak though..; – taste: 23 much more clarity on the delivery where the barley rings through as clear as the ring on a crystal tasting glass – finish: 23 remains mouth-watering and beautifully sweet; – balance: 23 outrageously juicy.” (Jim Murray – Whisky Bibble 2013)

Glenlossie distillery
La distillerie Glenlossie fut construite un peu au sud d’Elgin, dans la vallée de la Lossie. Sa voisine, la distillerie Mannochmore, fut inaugurée à une date ultérieure. Les bâtiments sont tout proches d’une voie ferrée.
La distillerie Glenlossie utilise des alambics en forme de gros oignon (onion shape) équipés de purificateurs qui clarifient le new spirit et l’adoucissent par la même occasion. Le single malt qu’elle produit fait preuve d’une grande douceur au palais. Presque moelleux, il restitue avec fraîcheur l’orge maltée.
Glenlossie est une distillerie dont les expressions sont particulièrement rares si ce n’est chez les embouteilleurs indépendants.
Le whisky est herbeux, malté et très floral. On le déguste plus volontiers à l’apéritif, et on apprécie à la fois son moelleux et son goût soyeux.

Speyside
The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.
