  1. alex..w..fan did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:Lochside 31 yo 1959/1991 (57.9%, Signatory Vintage, cask #5295, 140 bottles)  A very interesting bottle, as it clearly mentions ‘malt whisky’, while some well-reputed authors rather mention 1961 as the first year when Lochside started to distil malt. Indeed I’ve always thought that from 1957 to 1961, Lochside had only produced grain whisky, 1961 being the year when Joseph Hobbs, who was to pass away in 1964, installed four pot stills. Having said that, the Coffey still was only removed in 1970, so Lochside had been making both grain and malt (and single blends) in the 1960s. Anyway, let’s see if we could find out… Colour: gold. Nose: well well well, this is a tricky issue, since what I’m getting at first nosing is rather… rum. It’s true that Lochside’s ‘tropical’ fruitiness is never far from that of some rums. In truth I find this very malty, and should this baby be a grain, well, it’s the maltiest grain I’ve ever nosed. Oranges, green bananas… With water: same kind of combo. Oranges, Campari, mint leaves. Mouth: tastes like malt, big time! Peppery oranges, green tea, apple peelings, gooseberries, chilli… It’s both very fruity and very spicy, a combo that’s rather unusual. With water: almost a copy of the 1967 now, only with more spices, pepper, bitter oranges… Finish: rather long, peppery, beautifully bitter. Cinchona, bitter oranges, pepper, ginger, orange peel… Jaegermeister in the aftertaste. Comments: wonderful again, only the Jaegermeister was a little disturbing ;-). Oh and I highly doubt this was grain whisky. The mystery thickens… SGP:461 - 89 points.
