    Such a great Lochside, well-suited for those who like their fruit with a bit of punch (even at 'just' 46 percent).
    • Nose
      ell, it is fruity all right. Vibrant pink grapefruit, soft peach, banana candy, lychee and pineapple. Wonderful! Moves into a more porridge-y territory later on.
    • Taste
      Ah, nice, more fruit here as well. Grapefruit is still the most dominant for me, but also oranges and apricot. In the background a slight hint of cardboard. Touch of white pepper and some bitterness. Nice balance. Somewhat reminiscent of those fruity Littlemills from the early nineties.
    • Finish
      Long with less fruit, and more spices and wood.

  3. Feusi scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very nice color, copper and amber. Fruity sweetness with very pleasant spicy malt notes. The first sip is very comfortable and soft, sweet, fruity and spicy. The very long finish brings everything what already smelled in the nose again and a spicy woody notes stays on the palate. A good one and with 46v% a beautiful dram. I give them 1 point more.
