    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.

    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.
    • Nose
      Quite perfumed on lemon, apple and a little honey with some floral notes.
    • Taste
      Bitter grapefruit and honey at first and it is drying.

      There is light sponge cake with buttercream.
    • Finish
      Longer than expected a good medium length.

    Tastingnotes Serge Valentin - whiskyfun 87 points.Lochside 17 yo 1991/2008 (46%, The Nectar, Daily Dram, 252 bottles)  A late period Lochside, the wonderful distillery having been closed in 1992 and demolished around 2004. 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.
