About Chapter 7 Glenlossie 12 Year Old
Glenlossie! A delicacy of character has always defined this rarely seen single malt. From the outset, Glenlossie's stills were fitted with purifier pipes which carry any heavier alcohols which have refluxed out in the lyne arm and back into the body of the still to be redistilled. It is the use of these purifiers which adds a certain oily textural quality to the spirit, while a long fermentation also helps promote a grassiness in the new make.
This hogshead cask in the first Glenlossie Chapter 7 has bottled. We love Glenlossie for its delicate, sophisticated and oily character. Glenlossie remains a major contributor to its parent company's blends, and other than Diageo's Floral and Fauna series, where it is bottled as a 10 year old, it is rarely seen as a single malt bottling, even from independents.
