Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 49.6%
For fresh grassy Speyside whiskies - like the little-known Diageo workhorse Glenlossie - refill sherry casks are perfect, adding complexity without overpowering the spirit's character.
When that refill sherry cask belongs to Gordon & MacPhail, and has been left alone for over three decades, you can be pretty certain that the results are going to be spectacular, especially when the natural strength comes down around 50%.
This G&M Connoisseurs Choice Cask Strength Glenlossie 1988 has been bottled from a refill sherry hogshead in 2021 as a 32-year-old at its natural strength of 49.6%, and it's going to be a belter.
