Whisky Reviews for Linkwood 1989 CA

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.80 points

  1. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Nose is beautiful but palate and finish packs a little too much saltiness for my liking. 
    • Nose
      Peaches, pears, lots of cream and plenty of sweetness. With water the sweeter fruits take a back seat and grape skins make an appearance. 
    • Taste
      Salted caramel (which I find a lot in older Linkwoods), salted nuts and plenty of wood spice. With water the spice dies down but the salted caramels continue. 
    • Finish
      Medium spices with those salted notes continuing on for a long time.
