  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Cross comparison with Lochside 1991 G&M bottled in 2008. The profile of both versions whiskies is very similar. It seems to me that the 2001 version is slightly more fruity and less spicy.
    • Nose
      Grassy and malty. Green apples and floral notes of hay and Heather. Some wet grass as well.
    • Taste
      Sweet frui't; lemon and papaya. Oakiness with a spicy edge. Malty juiciness. Roasted almonds.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Mint. Bitter-sweet dryness.

    Lochside distillery has been closed for some time now what is on the market is becoming increasingly rare.
    • Nose
      Sweet with roasted malt.
    • Taste
      Heavy sweetness, spicy and malt influences.
    • Finish
      Medium dry.

    I tried it in the blind, the birthday man Kostya tortured everyone!)

    my verdict: Highland, not sure, but let it be Brora, refill bourbon hogsheads, batch from GM botler, up to 20 years old, 43-46%. Deliciously entered, and beautiful! 22 22 21 22 87.

  6. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    goes in the same direction as the 2007, but more mature and fuller. I like it. I also had the 1991-2010 of G & M, which was of course quite similar.
    • Nose
      similar to the 2007er, but almost a little more fruity, "younger", less peat smoke, but more herbaceous notes, maybe a little anise again, plus citrus. Over time he opens up and gets really strong and full, almost a little vanilla and sweetness. Nice nose.
    • Taste
      nice and strong, fruit, vanilla, tart oak and a bit of smoke.
    • Finish
      a lot of bitter oak, which unfortunately pushes the other flavors somewhat into the background. Light smoke remains, in addition a certain fruitiness and after some time also a slight sweetness.

  7. The Whisky Cyclist scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Citrus fruit, sweet, lemon
    • Taste
      Citrus, pineapple, lots of different fruits
    • Finish
      a little pepper, slightly bitter
