  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Lochside from the 1960's is always a pleasure. This one is very delicate and complex.
    • Nose
      Very dusty. Old books. Polished oak. Caramel. Flowery notes of heather and hay. Blackcurrants at the background.
    • Taste
      Orange marmelade. Vanilla fudge. But also bitterness of grapefruit. Some soft sherry influence.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Dry. Pepper. Ginger. Cinnamon.

    OBE worked for the nose, less for the palate. Very good old whisky though. It just misses some complexity and length.

      Dusty old books, leather, wood polish, dried fruits (prunes, dates), hay, hints of smoke.
    • Taste
      Wax, oranges, pepper, chocolate, nuts, vanilla and toffee.
    • Finish
      Medium, spices and toffee.
