Whisky Reviews for Lochside 1981 MM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.42 points

  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    I wonder if this would benefit from just a couple more years in the barrel. A higher ABV would help nudge this to 90 points.

      Some Lochside fruitiness here, but shy, with a bit of grassiness.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Yup, confirms my suspicion. Taste like one of those grassy, fruity Littlemill, albeit all on a more slightly subtle scale. Wax and green apples. Wish it was a bit fruitier.
    • Finish
      88 88
      No further development. Not very complex. A higher ABV would give it an extra point for sure. Some oak at the end.

  2. hs305 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    [September, 2010]  I had this dram during a FoSM club tasting.

    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 it 87,5.  Unfortunately no notes were taken.
