Whisky Reviews for Lochside 1981 CA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.13 points

  1. Luigisim scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Heavy stuff, not too bad but far from other distillery expression.

    Lochside was a mixed distillery (grain/malt). Somewhere at source of material, fermentation, distillation or maturation, this dram might have been contaminated with grain.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Alcoholic and grainy. Waited in vain to open up. It stays strong and flat
    • Taste
      80 80
      Quite heavy. Net grappa taste, with grain and malt touch.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Consistent but a bit poor

  2. Claudio + Cats scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Unfortunately the second weakest Lochside I have ever had in my collection. Only the 1991 I found even weaker. Otherwise I find the Lochside whiskys outstanding. The 29er Sherry Cask is certainly very strong.
    On new german: The strong on the bag is another model. nothing so enthesses these. That's just too bad for single cask nigg.
