Glenlossie 21 Years Old 1992 46.26 Killer Bee Surf Wax (54.4%, SMWS, Refill Bourbon HH, 238 Bottles, 2014)
Speyside single malt scotch whisky
54.4% ABV, £76.60
What they say:
Cask No. 46.26
We all imagined sitting in big, comfortable, leather armchairs on a sun deck with an outdoor marble fire place overlooking the ocean in some tropical location – possibly Acapulco – having breakfast. Honey on toast, pineapple juice, hot banana cake and fresh mango chunks. The taste was of a fresh fruit salad (pineapple, mango and passion fruit) with chilli flakes, black pepper and strawberry ice cream. Water released fresh/salty aromas of sushi, sashimi and a newly waxed surfboard in the corner. To taste; peach rice pudding, puff pastry with strawberry jam, lemon pie and macadamia nut oil.
Drinking tip: ‘Going loco’ on the beach

What I say:
Full refractive gold, numerous medium/heavy tears
Sweet, spirit and feinty, carnauba wax, beeswax, candles, spicy, cereal, fruity sweet peach and apricot, honey, clementines, apple pie and vanilla custard.
Slightly waxy, oily, orange juice, cantaloupe melon, peach skin, blossom honey, vanilla custard and apple pie, [cereal] shortcrust pastry
Short, sweet and waxy, oily and slightly spicy dry oak wood in places
Waxy and fruit-filled, like a waxed apple pie. The age reveals itself as a mellow complexity in the fruity flavours – another fine single cask from SMWS
