A remarkable vatting of rare Glenlossie Single Malt delivering a floral and herbal dram experience.

Alexander Murray is an independent bottler founded by Steve Lipp in 2004. The company is named after his great uncle who inspired Steve’e love of Malt Whisky, giving him his first taste many years ago. And although Alexander Murray operates out of California these days, they focus on Scottish Single Malts with an honest passion to search and find the rare casks that make up their signature blends and special edition releases

The Glenlossie Distillery is one of the unsung heroes of Single Malt. It has been producing Single Malt Spirit since 1876 on the banks of the Lossie River before it empties into the Spey in the Highlands and is owned by Diageo. Its sister distillery — Monnochmore — is within sight. And just about EVERTY drop of their precious barley nectar is used to fill out the blend profiles of Diageo’s expansive Scotch lineup. But sometimes there are Single Malt releases and sometimes… when we’re lucky… independent bottlers like Alexander Murray get their hands on a few special casks for a one-of-a-kind bottling. Alexander Murray Glenlossie 1997 19 Year Old Cask Strength is just that sort of opportunity.

It is comprised of three batched of 1997 vintage Single Malt aged for a minimum of nineteen years in re-fill ex-Bourbon hogshead casks and bottled at 53.3% ABV.

Gary
Gary,
I really enjoyed this
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, complex, Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky that has an aromatic birth; while a rich & complex life leads to a long & oily death.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Really like the nose!
 
Kimberly
Kimberly,
Just so so.
 
John
John,
This is my first time having scotch of this style and I really enjoyed it. Of the three in the tasting box this was the best. Someone else described it as cherry on top of a chocolate moose cake and it’s really does have those flavors. I will be buying a bottle.

Kyle,
Smooth, plenty of flavor, and wonderful nose appeal.
 
RAFAEL
RAFAEL,
Great on the nose, but the finish, maybe because of the higher ABV compared to the others in the quarterly box, takes away from the initial impression.
 
Evin
Evin,
A bit stronger than I'm used to. The high abv lets the flavors evaporate off the tongue. It's unique and has a rich flavor, but a bottle of it would probably sit on my shelf for a few years as it wouldn't be my go to Scotch to round out the day. More of a once in a while indulgence.
 
Matt
Matt,
Nice and smooth. I get a smooth honey finish.
 
Jasson
Jasson,
Delicious and odd. Rich on the tongue. At first I thought it spicy, but that was the 53.3% abv. It works well, I didn't even know about that until after I was finished with the dram. I'm too inexperienced to comment on the complexity of this one. But it's great to taste something this unique.
