Glenlossie has mostly been producing whisky for blends, especially the Haig brand, so we do get quite excited when we come across a single malt bottling of Glenlossie. There aren’t really any ‘true’ official bottings from the distillery so if you want a drop you’ll need to find a good independent whisky bottler to bring it to you. This Glenlossie 12 Years Old The Manager’s Dram 2004 is something a little bit different though. The Manager’s Dram series was started by Diageo who would task the distillery managers of brands under their ownership to specially select a whisky in their warehouse and bottle it up at cask strength exclusively for their employees. These are very special, rare bottlings and unless you go to work in one of Diageo’s distilleries (which would be an awesome job by the way), you definitely won’t come across the Manager’s Drams very often. It has a sweet nose with heather, grass, coconut and lemon. The palate displays nuts, honey, heather and some varnish. The finish is long with caramel and ginger.
