- Whisky from the Glenlossie is highly sought after by blenders and is consequently not widely available as a single malt. There is an official distillery bottling as part of UDV's Flora & Fauna series, however mostly found in independent bottlings. The distillery, established in 1876, is located in the heart of Speyside, adjacent to the Mannochmore distillery. It shares its staff with Mannochmore, each distillery producing alternately for approximately one year at a time. Once a major part of Haig's blend.
The Flora and Fauna single malt series were launched in 1992 by the then owner, United Distillers. The idea of the launch was to illustrate the differences in Scottish malt whisky regions. A total of 26 expressions were released. Initially the range was bottled at 43% but later some expressions were released as Cask Strength. Diageo has since taken over ownership of United Distillers and thus, the Flora and Fauna range. Diageo discontinued the series in 2010.
The range includes single malt bottlings from the following distilleries: Aberfeldy, Auchroisk, Aultmore, Balmenach, Bladnoch, Blair Athol, Royal Brackla, Coal Ila, Clynelish, Craigellachie, Daluaine, Dufftown, Glendullan, Glen Elgin, Glenlossie, Glen Spey, Inchgower, Linkwood, Mannochmore, Mortlach, Pittyvaich, Rosebank, Teaninich, Speyburn, Strathmill.
This is a smooth, medium bodied malt. The nose gives grassy aromas which give way to sweeter malt and spice flavours. The finish is long and spicy.
