Tasting notes

Lion's | 21-04-2013

Its colour is dark amber (caramel).

The nose is superb, with some ‘Atlantic freshness’ (don’t laugh!), some grassy notes, gooseberry, dried herbs, and quite some smoke. Very, very nice! Some toffee as well… yes, a great nose.

Mouth: again, it’s brilliant, fresh and lively. Twenty years in its bottle sure didn’t harm it, and this Lochside makes us think even more that malt can actually improve in glass. A lot of fruit, freshness, and some notes of burnt tire. Quite peaty, in fact! Absolutely superb, along the same line as some other great Lochsides from the 60’s (Premier Malt etc.) A great, great malt: OH 93, SV 92.
