The first impression is that of a walk on a warm summer’s evening in a garden with a variety of flowers - with every turn of the head new aromas delicately trying to get our attention. Next to the flowery notes there is sweet tobacco leaves, honey brioche and Crème Anglaise. The taste is velvety and mouth coating like a soft leather glove or melted butter and a lively finish of pepperedstrawberries with single cream. With the addition of very little water we detected a fruity cocktail or fruit punch with cinnamon and lime. The taste is now of fresh ripe strawberries, star fruit and barley sugar soaked in rum. Give this make, distilled on the grounds of the Glenlossie distillery since 1971, time at every stage and you will be richly rewarded.
