Whisky Reviews for Lochside 1981 DD
11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.00 points
Owned for a time by a Spanish sherry company, Daily Dram have [according to WB], bottled three Lochside’s thus far.
N: I believe this has been PX-finished. The result? Friggin’ delicious, this old herbal-y barley-light malt with a vibrant/contemporary oak-driven sherry-succulent tincture-like thread.
T: More sherry action follows on the palate with armagnac then cognac references, derived of course, from the cask. The journey continues with cherry marmalade and a hard sponge maltiness. This Lochside remains vibrant yet conversely old skool-ish in style.
F: Plenty of dark bitter herbal oak tannins and more armagnac/cognac vibes after a long dessert-styled finish with a pleasing array of Christmas-y sultana and sweet-spicy fig mince pie notes that run & run.
C: Warm & inviting whisky, thanks in part to Destilerias y Crianzas and their cask management [SW].

- This one is very much towards cognac styles with rich grapes.
Rich grapes, cognac, old style
More grapes, very sweet, dry oak
Minty and smooth, like an Irish whisky
Prune, raisin, mango yoghurt, Turkish delight and brie cheese. With water some litchi and a whiff of coconut.
Peach yoghurt, raisin, cherry, blood orange and mocha.
