Glenlossie 10 Year Old / Flora & Fauna / 43% / 70cl
Founded in 1876, Glenlossie is one of Speysides smallest distillery and a true hidden gem. It shares its warehouses with the adjacent Mannochmore distillery and produces a peculiarly light and delicate whisky that makes it the epitome of the Speyside style. This is due to a spirit purifier between the lyne arm and condenser, which causes a small amount of reflux giving a character more akin to a triple-distilled malt that a double distilled.
The Flora and Fauna range was created by distillery owners Diageo to showcase distilleries that otherwise would not be available as single malts, with almost all of their output being earmarked for blended whiskies.
