    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Lochside 44 yo 1967/2011 (41.1%, Coopers Choice, butt, cask #802, 320 bottles)  This baby may be the oldest Lochside malts ever bottled. Coopers Choice had several casks, and we already had a lighter (in colour) cask a few years ago (cask #807, WF 90). Colour: deep gold. Nose: Jesus Mary and Joseph, what a great Lochsidian nose! Imagine a little copper, or say old coins, plus a large basket full of ripe mangos, bananas, passion fruits and pink grapefruits. Then, after fifteen seconds, you get more menthol, peppermint, and the faintest eucalyptussy smell. Perhaps a handful of fresh almonds and hazelnuts as well. The freshness is impressive, you would have thought this baby would have been ridden with oaky scents. Not at all! Perhaps also rose petals and a touch of fresh butter. This, is a malt of distinction. Mouth: hehehe, it roars! Well, not quite, but I had feared that at barely 40% vol. it would have become flattish and cardboardy. Not at all, and even if it’s not the brightest hyperfruity Lochside ever, and even if it tends to lose a bit of steam after one minute, all the fruits are still there. Maracuja, mangos, all that. A little chamomile as well, lime tree tea, green tea, orange blossom. In fact, it ends its life on you your palate almost all on notes of freshly squeezed oranges. Finish: okay, it’s rather short – no, very short - but it remained fresh. As they say, it leaves your palate ready for another glass. Comments: reminds me of some old Irish! Technically, this very old malt should rather lie around 87/88 points in my book, but a. it’s Lochside and b. this is the Christmas week. So… SGP:451 - 90 points.

    lovely neat, tiny bit of water brings out the fruit.  This is seriously drinkable - I cant see anyone not liking it!
    • Nose
      subtle, citrus, lemon zest, candied orange peel, wet grass, honey and wax.
    • Taste
      tangerines, honey, salt and a wisp of smoke.  Surprisingly little oak, but enough to add some vanilla and complexity to mix with the beeswax.   
    • Finish
      Even more tangerines and other fruits - grapefruit and melon. gentle oak too, never drying or bitter.

    The oldest whisky I have tried so far. Overall, I like it quite well, even though I'm more of a fan of more intense whisky.
    • Nose
      Very complex. First sweet with dark fruit, cinnamon, strawberry, fully ripe bananas, pear and caramel. Then come spicy wood notes and chocolate. Also a touch like freshly cut grass.
    • Taste
      Sweet start with a variety of fruit. After that, dark chocolate spreads. Very silky and soft with honey. As well as an ubiquitous and interesting taste of dragon fruit.
    • Finish
      Expressive oak in the form of dark men's chocolate. Again, I find the dragon fruit again. Overall, very soft and mild with a long-lasting, woody, bitterness. Slightly warming.
