Lochside 1981 / 40 Year Old / Gordon & MacPhail Private Collection
Product Description

A rare release of Lochside single malt matured for four decades in a refill hogshead. This excellent addition to the Gordon & MacPhail private collection shows Lochside at its best, a richly textured whisky with bags of forest fruits and old-school sherry influence. Characteristic blackcurrants and raspberries lead into deeper notes of freshly roasted coffee beans, salted caramel, raisins and cocoa powder.

The whisky baron Joseph Hobbs installed the first pot stills in the old Lochside brewery in 1961. After that site operated as a distillery for a relatively short time, clinging on through the difficult years of the 1980s only to close for good in 1992. Much of what it produced in the intervening years was earmarked for blending, making single malt releases like this one very special indeed.
