Whisky Reviews for Lochside 1979 DL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.27 points

  1. Toffie76 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Lack of balance. Distillate fault? ("heat" of the bad alcohol). Or was weirdly tired? I do not claim to have the necessary expertise to decide, but this whisky is not to my taste in any case, even if it is drunk anyway, huh.
    • Nose
      Very fruity, citrus, melon. Grapefruit. Synthetic perfume, a little rough. Iodine? Mineral, certainly. Pear, vanilla, fragrant flowers (lilac).
    • Taste
      Beautiful fruity attack. A bit short though. A lot of bitterness.
    • Finish
      Bitterness, clove, thyme, sage. Wood. Dry up in an unpleasant way.

  2. Bishlouk scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Very sweet as a whole, becomes disgusting with time. And the final bitterness is unfavorable to him.
    • Nose
      Melon, grapefruit, a slight sea breeze. Figs and dates? Juicy pear and vanilla.
      Nose enough monolithic and that does not evolve.
    • Taste
      Sweet pear, grapefruit juice.
      Mouth not bad, in the continuity of the nose.
    • Finish
      The pear always. Then nothing. Then a big bitterness arrives at once and (unfortunately) remains.
