Interestingly this distillery continues to use lurch wash backs replacing like for like at considerable cost to ensure consistency in the distillery characters.
:Colour: Pale Straw
Nose: Warm Custard and apple crumble. Soya sauce and ginger mint humbugs emerge with also a sprinkling of white pepper
Taste: Malty, some lime cordial and olive oil. Hints of gingerbread and butter emerges along with a faint whiff of pancetta
Finish: Soft fruit loaf (Feeling more like dark fruits) with root ginger
Comment: A mixed bag of lights and dark fruits
Glenlossie Distillery is sited, not far from Elgin, nestling under the cover of a fir clad hill. Its site enables the waters running from the Mannoch Hills to collect in a reservoir just South of the distillery. The distillery was established by a local publician, John Duff, who had previously been manager at Glendronach Distillery. It was expanded 20 years later and in 1962 extended further with the addition of a further two stills. Although the distillery buildings have retained a
traditional feel, the Glenlossie site has been extensively developed. As well as cask warehousing that can hold 38.5 million litres of alcohol and a dark grains plant, in 1971 Mannochmore Distillery was built.
