|Description||Founded in 1817 by Malcolm McNeill, Lossit was the biggest producer of whisky on Islay in the industry’s formative years and lasted for half a century until it was silenced in 1867. The longest surviving and most successful of Islay’s farm-distilleries, Lossit was part of the transformation of Islay’s reputation from an outpost of smugglers to a leading force in the whisky industry. Lossit’s ability (and need to) utilise entirely local supplies to build a business that could satisfy both local and national markets is a structure that many Single Estate distillers are attempting to replicate today. It could even be said that Lossit was the original Single Estate distillery!|

|Description of Taste|
|Tasting note||Appearance: Sauternes wine, oily and slow-running legs. Aroma: From the beginning its peat smoke, winey fruit and malty notes – this rather subtle nose also has hints of pineapple, vanilla and buttered burnt toast. Taste: The palate has a smooth and creamy tangy start, leading to a smoky bonfire with waves of gentle spice flowing in between the puffs of smoke. Finish: Gingerbread, grilled grapefruit and its long, smoky and complex - just when you think its fading, the waves of spice are back. Comment: For those who enjoy mature Islay Scotch whisky this is exceptionally elegant and complex.|
