Expert Senior P.A.O.K.you_are Note
04 Oct 2016 4:00 am

Lochside 46 yo 1965/2011 (52.3%, Adelphi, single blend, cask # 6778, 499 bottles) Five stars Just like at Ben Nevis, the former owners of Lochside (Mr. Hobbes) used to distil both malt and grain on the same location, which allowed them to come up with some genuine ‘single blend’. So this one is a blend of Lochside malt and Lochside grain that was ‘married at birth’, in 1965. Colour: deep amber. Nose: starts like some old quality bourbon, with a little varnish, coconut and banana, but switches towards strawberries and raspberries after a few seconds. Liqueur-filled chocolate, then more ham (Spanish bellota, and I’m not joking) and beef stock, mint tea, leather polish, old sherry, a little soy sauce… Well, it’s not ‘a blend’ as far as the nose is concerned, it’s more focussed than that. Quite brilliant! Mouth: a tad strange at first sips, there’s a lot of oak influence but it remained rather smooth and rounded, not unlike some old rums. Something clearly medicinal (cough medicine), then old Grand-Marnier, touches of lemon and lemongrass, a little ginger, liquorice, candied chestnuts… And then the same notes of liqueur-filled chocolates that we had in the nose. Also a liitle rancio, old cognac style. Finish: rather long, even more on liqueurs and chocolate, with a soft spiciness (cloves, cinnamon). Comments: very excellent. It’s not easy to tell this is a blend… nor pure malt whisky. More than just a curiosity anyway! SGP:661 - 90 points.

Farbe: Maha­goni
Nase: Abso­lut fette Sherry- und Rot­weina­ro­men mit dunk­len Kir­schen, genial sal­zi­ger Würze und etwas Möbel­po­li­tur. Es liegt ein Hauch von Gum­mi­hand­schu­hen im Glas, der hier jedoch toll har­mo­niert. Oran­gen, Tabak, Vanille, Pflau­men­mus, über­reife Holun­der­bee­ren, Leder und dunkle Kräu­ter­tee­aro­men. Ein­fach nur lecker!!!
Geschmack: Dünne Struk­tur, jedoch mit bra­chia­ler Power! Dunkle, cre­mige Würze mit viel Frucht, Eichen­holz und wie­der Möbel­po­li­tur. Unter­ge­ord­net läuft eine Pfefferminz-Frische, die mit Scho­ko­lade, Kakao und Tee-Noten ein­her­geht. Per­fekt und unglaub­lich fas­zi­nie­rend!
Finish: Lang – cre­mig, teil­weise tro­cken fruch­tig, teil­weise mit fri­schen Kräu­tern. Holz, viel Holz? Ja, aber per­fekt inte­griert. Mit Noten von Tee, getrock­ne­ten Kräu­tern, Pflau­men, Holun­der, Vanille und tro­cke­nem Leder aus­klin­gend. Die Noten von Holun­der und Pflau­men­mus kle­ben eine Ewig­keit auf der Zunge.
Bemer­kung: Ein Ham­mer­teil und das mit 46 Jah­ren Fass­la­ge­rung! Die Hol­za­ro­men sind wie auf die­sen Blend zuge­schnit­ten. Wahr­lich ein Adelphi-Volltreffer!

Farbe: rotbraun, Cola

Nase: sehr alte, dunkle, tiefgründige Sherrynase, dunkle Schokolade, Kakao, Kirschen, sehr schön

Körper: mittel/ölig

Mund: mild, reife süße Noten, Dörrobst, dkl. Schokolade, trockene Holznoten

Abgang: lang, mild, zuerst süß, dann ein trockenes Mundgefühl, etwas bitterer Holzgeschmack

Fazit: 92P., sehr schöne dunkle Sherrybombe, Holz sehr deutlich, nicht so frisch wie das Schwester-Cask, könnte auch als reiner Malt durchgehen.

Nose

unbewegt: Klebernote, Sherryfass, rauchig staubige Walnussschalen, Rosinenfleisch, kalter Mokka mit braunem Zucker, Crema Catalana
wunderbar weiche warme Noten

bewegt: Schärfe, dunkler stark eingekochter Pflaumenmus, leicht angebrannt,
süße staubige Rosinen, nasse Kräuter im Verfall, leicht beißende Klebernote,
etwas Gurkenfass, 

Taste

Antritt heiß, leicht scharf
mit vollen prallen Rosinen
ganz leichte Alkoholnote

heißer Mokka mit Karamelsoße
auf Deiner Zunge wird süße Frucht und heißer Mokka zu einer intensiv würzigen Erinnerung

Finish

lange

leicht bittere Eiche mit reifen Pflaumenschalen frisst sich in Deinen Gaumen
lange bleibt dieses exotische Fernweh in Deinem Mund
wie ganz früher
wie tiefes Spanien
wie dunkel und süß
wie heiß und würzig
wie Leidenschaft und Gefahr
Comments

so viel Charakter verträgt ein Stolpern
muss es vielleicht haben
um einzigartig und anziehend zu sein
eine faszinierende Mischung aus Vergangenem, aus Alter, viel Fass, Sherry und dem Hauch einer Bourbonnote

und der letzte Tropfen im Glas riecht so verführerisch
als wolle er mir sagen, ich habe noch mehr Geheimnisse … 

 
yes! I’m in heaven

danke für das schöne Geschenk,   wow !
unforgettable whisky takes you on a journey, gives you new dreams, awakens your forgotten dreams, moves you out of time.....

Colour: Mahogany Nose: Prunes, dried apricots, dark caramel, toffee, cigar box, leather, cinnamon and hints of nutmeg. Palate: Dried apricots, raisins, Scotch tablet, chocolate, strong tea, cinnamon and nutmeg. Finish: Long and fruity with a dry sweetness. Overall: A superb sherried whisky, the wood influence is rather strong but kept in check by the rich sweet and fruity aromas.

The nose is rich and rum-like with dried fruits, brown sugar, burnt vanilla, dates, and a hint of orange peel. The taste is thick, rich, and oily with orange peel and hints of ginger, almonds, and nutmeg. The finish is very long with almonds, brown sugar, and a hint of orange peel. Outstanding!

Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

1 of only 499 bottles from cask no. 6778

There are many extraordinary traits to this cask. Firstly it is from a distillery which no longer exists (closed in 1992); secondly it arrived in its original Harveys Bodega Spanish shipping butt complete with red seal; thirdly it still sports a hefty 52.3% alc/vol despite 46 years of maturation; and last, but by no means least, we managed to extract 499 bottles from the cask after all these years of angelic participation. The term “single blend” relates to the fact that Lochside had both Patent and pot stills, allowing them to distill both grain and malt whisky. Occasionally these makes would be blended at birth into single casks to mature together – this is one such cask. The European oak has given it a fantastic dark rum colour - and an extraordinary balance if you estimate a 50-50 malt-grain blend. Red fruit, cherries damsons, toffee, balsamic vinegar, dried figs, dates, sweet and balmy. Opulent, but elegant. Light, but luscious. Enigmatic. Italian white truffle, hazelnut and dark chocolate. Quite superb but we recommend that you do not reduce with any water.

Nase: schwerer Sherrymalt, Rote Beerenfrüchte und verbranntes Karamell, Toffee, heftige Eiche, Kokosnuss, verbranntes Toastbrot


Geschmack: Sehr eichenlastig, schwerer Sherry, dunkle Süße, Kirschen, Lakritze


Finish: ewig lang, tolle, dunkle Süße, Lakritze, wird hintenraus trocken mit Eiche

88 Punkte - für mich etwas zu viel Sherry und Eiche

i don't know why this should be refill sherry. According to the leaflet this 'arrived in its original Harveys Bodega Spanish shipping butt complete with red seal', so i do think this is first fill sherry.

Color
Old oak
Nose

It takes a few minutes before it opens up but then there are a lot of dark fruits. Raisins, Dates, Figs, Dried apricots, nutmeg, cinnamon, rum, coffee, oak. A bit of varnish and furniture polish wax

Taste

Fruity sherry at first, then a oaky slightly bitter almond taste. Spices grows and takes over the fruitiness and the oak.

Finish

Medium long to long finish going from spicy chili pepper to a lightly bitter oaky finale

Comments

This is one of those bottles that will last for a long time as a few drops is what you need to sit exploring the complex nose for hours.
