    Lochside 44 yo 1967/2011 (41.5%, Coopers Choice, cask #807)  Colour: gold. Nose: it's the oak that's talking but it's absolutely not oaky as such. So vanilla and coconut at first, then more marzipan, custard, putty, hazelnut liqueur (and even touches of the dreaded Bailey's) and then only distant ideas of limes and lemons. Frankly, it's a big surprise that this baby wouldn't be oakier and more tired, esp. at such low strength (btw, it's cask strength). Mouth: the miracle goes on, with a very wide assortment of tropical fruits (coconuts first, then mangos, pineapples and papayas) and aromatic herbs and flowers (teas). Rosehip, hawthorn, honeysuckle pastries, baklavas, vanilla… It's quite incredible that oak didn't take control here, and there's certainly something of an old high-quality grain whisky (although the label stipulates 'single malt'). Finish: more of all that plus strawberries and orange blossom water in the aftertaste. Comments: old malt whisky that tastes pretty much like old grain whisky in my opinion. Who cares, quality's very high but warning, it's extremely quaffable.SGP:641 - 90 points.

    • Nose
      Malty and slightly herbal. Rhubarb and cream. Fig rolls.
    • Taste
      Light chocolate digestive with just a hint of
      fragrant leather. Plum some dark spices, a little treacle.

      Mint chocolate and crisp oak.
