Christmas! Gingerbread, cinnamon and cloves dominate the nosing at first. A hint of honey wine flashes through briefly in places, but is quickly replaced by spices, dried fruit and plums. As if that wasn't enough, cranberries, dried cherries and yes - really - Nutella follow after some time in the glass.


We continue our visit to the Christmas market with caramel and the sweet, full-bodied flavour of red fruits and a juicy mango. Roasted almonds and star fruit are not to be missed. Cheekily, there is also a little chilli kick hiding in the corner. The alcohol is wonderfully integrated as an intense flavour carrier.


The Glenlossie remains long and warming with bitter dark chocolate and a little aniseed.


The Glenlossie 12 year old from Malts of Scotland is a genuine and intense Christmas whisky. It lacks nothing that you would want from a single malt in the cold season. Here and there, the bottling surprises with something unexpected, such as mango in the flavour and Nutella in the nosing. An all-round success!

Rating: 85/100 - Excellent (Marcel: 85 | Sascha: 85)
