  1. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very clearly the tannins at the beginning, only later influences of the distillate. Still a nice mix of flavors. Again, the finish is clearly better for me than the taste on the palate. A decent whisky.
    • Nose

      Oak, tobacco, black tea, chocolate, ripe pear, nut, tart, vanilla, grass, coconut, subtle sulphur
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet, hay, honey, pepper, malt
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium-length finish, short soapiness, oak, bitterness, berries and exotic fruits, alcohol reasonably integrated.

  2. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Delicious, very, very spicy, for some it will be too peppery and heavy with ginger, I think it's very nice, you don't see it that often.
    • Nose
      Net melon, some pineapple chips, lemongrass, camphor, nice light herbal honey, honey cereals, star fruit and some anise, light malt and sweet grasses, some white pepper
    • Taste
      Spicy attack, white pepper, camphor and ginger, then grapefruit peel, kiwi, nice pineapple, cereals, light herb honey, toast, anise, crunchy malt, a little carbon dioxide, sweet grasses, miso leaves, salt
    • Finish
      Grapefruit, miso, camphor and ginger, malt, medium length, a little honey and green apple

  3. sagara-kun scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A pretty, very fruity Lochside.
    Too bad for the caramel on the palate otherwise we would have had 1 point more.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Nice nose, slightly camphorated.
      Apricot in syrup, peach, papaya, light melon, passion fruit, lemongrass.
      Pepper, wood, light smoke, honey, corn flakes.
    • Taste
      87 87
      On the palate, we have an attack on industrial caramel.
      Then the fruit takes again the front, with orange, apricot, green apple, pineapple, papaya.
      We have wood, more than on the nose.
      Light milk chocolate, honey, pepper, cloves.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long finish on honey, apple, lemon, ginger, pepper and always a light smoke.
