Lochside 1964 46 yo Single Barrel

Lochside 1964 46 yo Single Barrel

Rare Old, The Whisky Exchange
Single blend - East Highlands
42.1% ABV

Nose: Vanilla, bubblegum, roses, oranges, pomeloes.
Mouthfeel: Light body, watery, slippery, airy.
Tasting: Sweet. Vanilla, bubblegum, roses, vanilla, pomeloes, hints of black tea.
Finish: Medium. Pomeloes, roses, bubblegum, black tea.


This is a combination of grain whisky and malt whisky, aged together in the same cask. A very unusual style. The grain is very apparent, but the citrusy fresh notes of the malt come through sure enough. There's a slightly astringent bite on the end. Not hugely complex despite the long aging, I think the grain masks many notes.


I like this.
