  1. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    It is significantly different than the Lochsides I have tasted so far. Lives a little on a "dirty" note and has a lot less fruitiness than others. The light smoke surprises me and the whisky benefits from it.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Caramel, a hint of campfire smoke, malt, petrol, cloves, cocoa, with light exotic fruits and coconut in the very background.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Smoke, sweetness, light fruit, faint honey, chocolate, pepper
    • Finish
      85 85
      Almost medium length finish. Light fruit, bitterness, gasoline, cocoa, light smoke.

  2. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Certainly nothing intoxicating, but a solid, really nice malt, the nose was a bit weaker, but in the mouth it shows surprisingly nice maturity for the age and also in comparison to other so young GM CC from the time.
    • Nose
      Dry, slightly dusty, parched lemon peel, fresh malt, light honey, a little gooseberry, a touch of lemongrass and slightly metallic, apricot and subtle heather grass
    • Taste
      Ok, really exciting for the age, nice oak and leather covers, some cinnamon, nice malt, lemon peel and gooseberry, apricot with a stone, nice grass, lemongrass, fresh ginger, some green tea
    • Finish
      Ginger, eucalyptus and lots of fresh grass, malt, citrus peel, medium length

  3. EvilAFI scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Just a average light peat and sweet pour, nothing screams unique and it’s not my favorite.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Sweet, earthy peat, citrus, grassy
    • Taste
      84 84
      Thin, light peat and sweet malt, musty
    • Finish
      83 83
      Peppery, lemon,

  4. sagara-kun scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A good, simple, but pleasant Lochside with no major flaws.
    Makes you want to drink a large glass.
    • Nose
      84 84
      A fairly light nose, and rather classic.
      We feel that the time in the bottle is starting to take effect.
      Light obe, metallic, dusty, all these aromas which give an impression of melted.
      A little lemon, juice and fresh, a little barley.
      Light hay.
    • Taste
      85 85
      In the mouth it is oily.
      Hay, old book, dust, old furniture.
      Cloves, cereals, pepper, vanilla, wood.
      Light apricot and lemon zest.
      There is a grassy side which was however absent on the nose.

      It's simple, but without a big misstep.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Final on freshly cut grass, lemon zest, cloves, nutmeg, vanilla custard. All sprinkled with a nice dose of pepper.

  6. St. Pauli scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    The only special about this whisky by the time of writing this review, is that is very rare. Not the most complex and entertaining whisky in the world.
    • Nose
      Slightly metallic and on sweat socks. Not a kick start to say the least. After a while, rather simple malt, cabbage, vanilla and lemon. Even later: more vanilla and banana. 
    • Taste
      Light to medium body, a bit obligatory. Grass, vanilla, lemon, and a bit of pepper. Nothing special.
    • Finish
      Grass, pepper, a bit of malt, vanilla and a hint of citrus.
