Nose
Lemon curd in a wooden tub. Some cooked notes. Smoky.
Palate
Slippery-smooth. Astonishingly sugary. A real sugar-rush. Then buttery. Like eating breakfast pancakes with fruit.
Finish
Hot, fruity. Himbergeist.
Comment
Lochside was a capricious malt, but it is missed nonetheless.

72
Nose
Fresh with light fruits, preserved lemon, green grapes. Water tames it a little but those high-toned fruity/floral aromas dominate.
Palate
Incredibly sweet to start and also slightly fizzy. It's a lemon sherbet dab! Water doesn't manage to kill this zippiness though there is a slight woody edge.
Finish
Toasty and a little tannic.
Comment
Vibrant, sure wakes you up.
