The tenth cask bottled by The Scotch Malt Whisky from Lochside distillery in the Highlands. This was distilled in May 1981 and bottled 20 years later in June 2001. The distillery sadly closed in 1992 and bottlings are increasingly sought after.
A 1966 Lochside from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail as part of the Connoisseurs Choice range. Formerly the site for Deuchars' Beer Brewery, Lochside opened in 1957 as a joint grain and malt distillery.

A 1966 vintage whisky from much-loved lost distillery Lochside, closed since 1992 and demolished in 2005. This was distilled back in 1966, the distillery's heyday, on December 15th. It was bottled from a vatting of three casks in August 1989 at 22 years old.
An old Connoisseurs Choice bottling of whisky from Lochside, released back in the 1980s when Gordon & Macphail still used the, even for the day, retro looking brown livery. This was distilled in 1966 and aged for 21 years, and should be packed full of Lochside's trademark fruitiness.
