The Lochside Distillery was in the town of Montrose, in the Eastern Highlands and started life as a brewery in 1781. The brewery remained in the hands of Scottish & Newcastle until 1957, when it was closed and sold to Macnab Distilleries. The new owners converted Lochside to distillation, producing both grain and malt whiskies for the Spanish market, and the Sandy McNab blended and 10yo single malt whiskies. Pernod Ricard eventually acquired, then closed Lochside in 1992 with the buildings being demolished in 2004-5 to make way for a housing development.
This rare Adelphi bottling, one of only 552 bottles from a refill Sherry butt, is an obvious collector's opportunity.
Tasting note: Flawless deep burnished copper appearance. The bouquet shows some serious depth offering up heavy scents of marzipan, choc fudge, brandy cream and roasted nuts, with hints of sulphur in the background. Rewards with time in the glass as the focus shifts to become surprisingly rum-like with superb aromas of dried banana, polished leather and cigar box. Still later inspection yields suggestions of aged balsamic. A terrific sniff. Light, dryish entry turns into a full bodied, concentrated mid palate with lively spices tingling the tongue along side some sulphury undertones that come across like baked parnsip; Mid palate offers a sweet oatmeal and ginger biscuit burst. Gently bittersweet at the finish, overall superb balance. Concludes light, warming and dry with impressive persistence as the sweet dried banana and rum-like characteristics make a lengthy return at the fade. An astonishing merry-go-round of flavour. 54.6% Alc./Vol.
