First Impression: Connoisseurs Choice Lochside Distilled 1991

[43%・10 Years Old・Gordon & MacPhail Bottling]

Nose:

Nose of an old school Highland whisky, clean soft malt setting the tone with infusion from sweet Seville oranges gifting the dram a jammy presence. Mellow cedar wood with a whiff of white floral note elongating the simplistic enjoyment.

Palate & Finish:

Orange sorbet and mango frozen yoghurt, decorated with glazed walnuts. The delivery is soft and mellow, with a medium finishing of fruitiness and maltiness finely blended together.

Thoughts:

A typical comfort whisky from a by-gone era, this would have been some lucky guy’s daily dram back in the day.
