  1. nigel_tufnel did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Lochside 1981/2001 (59%, Blackadder, cask #614, 314 bottles) 1981,
    together with 1966, used to be the fruitier years at Lochside, in my
    experience. I remember a Murray McDavid that was pure tangerine juice.
    Where are Murray McDavid? Colour: pale gold. Nose: take three
    grapefruits, four tangerines, one orange and half a mango. Squeeze,
    nose. You got it. With water: touches of candy sugar, otherwise 100%
    citrus fruits. Mouth (neat): we're close to the 1989. A citrus bomb,
    even zestier than the 1989. Sharp cool-climate riesling and massive
    doses of grapefruit and lemon juice. You know, some fruity whiskies are a
    bit girly, in a way (no, no, I'm not being a sexist), but these
    Lochsides were different. More Charlotte Rampling in the 1970s than
    Miley Sirrus. Isn't that Cyrus? Ceyrus? Seyrrus? Who cares? With water:
    oh, olive oil! Finish: long and simply amazing. A blend of limoncello
    and mezcal, 50/50. Comments: I could spend countless hours pondering
    whether the 1989 was better, or this 1981, or the 1989, or the 1981... I
    also think bottle ageing do these babies much good. SGP:652 - 93 points.
