    Typical Linkwood style, with a lot of fresh, fruity and sweet notes. Very nice botteling.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Very fresh and fruity,citrus, peach, pineapple, vanilla sweet as well. Pretty prominent alcohol, fresh mown grass.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Surprisingly soft and smooth, but then some tickering on the tongue. Fresh, fruity, citrus and vanilla, full taste.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Still some reasonable pepper, fruity, citrus, vanilla sweet, peach, warming now, pretty long.

    Nice, 86/87. Thanks for the free sample! 
    • Nose
      Apple juice, peach, vanilla pudding, a light maltiness and a whiff of banana. Water adds a subtle touch of spice.
    • Taste
      A sweet bourbon influence. Apple, peach, honey and pepper. Can't stand too much water.
    • Finish
      Pear, vanilla and honey.

    A really nice fresh sipping whisky.
    • Nose
      Green apple skin, talcum powder, new printing paper, nougat, butter and dried oregano.
    • Taste
      Again with the apples, some mixed green veg, oregano again, ripe melon, conference pear and candy stick.
    • Finish
      A medium to long finish and again those apple and pears really do linger.

    Pretty OK and drinkable - nothing special though
    • Nose
      Dry hay, honey, little citric - pretty mainstream
    • Taste
      Oily, creamy, good sweetness, malty, hints of fresh fruits
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm
