    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.
    • Nose
      Rich grapes, cognac, old style
    • Taste
      More grapes, very sweet, dry oak
    • Finish
      Minty and smooth, like an Irish whisky
