  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A dram which remains quite simple and one-dimensional.
    All the same pleasant, with a nice exoticism. It is drunk by itself.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Soft and light nose. You can feel the reduction, but it doesn't seem too violent.
      We are clearly on a fruit juice of apples, peaches, pear, apricots in syrup.
      We have white pepper, a light canned pineapple.
      Light rhubarb. Italian green melon.
    • Taste
      87 87
      In the mouth, it is a little more astringent.
      We have green wood, pineapple and its bark.
      The apple and pear are still there, accompanied by lemon zest, lime and guava.
      We also have some metallic aromas, like old tool.
      Slightly watery.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Slightly astringent finish there too, on fruits, wood, rhubarb, lemon zest.
      Light.

  2. Cubey666 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Tasted this fruity Lochside at the 2nd Whiskybase Gathering in Rotterdam, November 2017.

    initially it reminded me somewhat of Littlemill, but fruitier without its cardboard or earthy sidenotes. Orchard fruits, like apples and pears, together with melons galore.

  3. hs305 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2004]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 65 Euro in September, 2004.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 85.  My notes state it is easy drinkable but not more...
