Color: bright gold.
Nose: rich, heady. On the first nose, very pretty notes of straw, green almond and candied lemons accompany honey (acacia) and fruity (pear, apple, pineapple) flavors. As a highlight, green barley, chlorophyll and green liquorice refresh the ambient atmosphere. Over time, a superb note of vetiver hovers above the aromatic palette.
Palate: lively, sharp. Oscillating between freshly cut grass and almond milk, the attack on the palate is in line with the first nose. In the mid-palate, aromatic plants (sage, verbena, chamomile) irremediably intensify the vegetal character of the taste palette. In the aftertaste, arugula leaves embellished with balsamic vinegar take over the entire palate.
Overall: long, balanced. Equally green, the start of the finish also brings juicy pears and squeezed lemons to the fore. Quickly, however, dill and a very nice malty bitterness reconnect with the plant terroir of choice of this beautiful Glenlossie. In retro-olfaction, green licorice, incense and juniper berries constitute a taste trio full of verve. The empty glass is minty, heady (iris concrete) and medicinal (balm).
