Whisky Reviews for Lochside 1991 DD
9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.00 points
- I like the idea of Lochside that they have a nice mix of fruity, sour, slightly salty notes and are always a bit dirty, even this one does not disappoint.
Nice sweet nose, lots of light honey, brown sugar, fresh apple juice, slightly sweetened lemon, tannins, sweet malt, cinnamon, white chocolate, lemongrass, some ginger, some grapefruit
Nice on the nose too, sweet, slightly acidic and nice Power for the%, lemon drops, lime zest, mandarin fresh, green apple, grapefruit peel, lemongrass, granulated sugar, ginger, some white pepper, nice salt behind, sourcurrants, noticeable tannins for the age , some malt
Dry, malt comes clearly to the front with a lot of tannins, some salt in between, the grapefruit and lime zest, medium to long
- This is much better now, appears to be sweeter than before, worthy of a few more points 85 -87.
- pale gold color, beautiful nose with hints of butter and lots of fruit (especially peach, yellow fruits). Fruity mouth attack, peach, passion, end of mouth a little more on the cereal. Fairly good length but the finish is a bit younger and bitter than the attack. A whisky little marked by the barrel, which begins to develop beautiful fruity aromas, a pity not to have bottled a few years later.
- I did not find this particularly expressive and found it a just a little too bitter for my taste.
Quite perfumed on lemon, apple and a little honey with some floral notes.
Bitter grapefruit and honey at first and it is drying.
There is light sponge cake with buttercream.
Longer than expected a good medium length.

Look at the picture below, wasn’t it very ‘Neuschwanstein’? And the malt always quite princely? Colour: pale gold. Nose: as clean, crisp and fruity as Lochside could get, with something a little ‘Lowlands’ as often (Bladnoch, Auchentoshan) plus that extra ‘old Highlands’ kick that’s so trilling. It’s not a big nose actually but we’re getting tangerines, passion fruits, rhubarb, yellow flowers and fresh mint, all encapsulated in a light, refined oakiness (cedar wood). Hints of dried flowers (pot-pourri). A very elegant dram on the nose, kind of aerial but not really light. Mouth: assertive and very, very fruity, with a lot of orange juice and even papayas as well as notes of fresh bananas, the oak growing then bigger (cinnamon). The big fruitiness evolves more towards kiwis after a moment, with unusual vegetal notes (sorrel, rocket salad). Finish: medium long, more on strawberry drops now. And quite some kiwi! Comments: not as much a fruitbomb as earlier vintages but it’s still very fruity whisky with quite a body. We’ll always miss the very ‘unusual’ Lochside. SGP:641 - 87 points.
