  3. Monsieur Dram scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Here is a Linkwood light at first but offers a nice aromatic complexity, all finesse. It lacks a little precision and surprise to take a step, but it is completely on the road. Exuberant lover go your way!
    • Nose
      Lively and fresh at first, he offers us notes of pear sorbet, delicately sprinkled with lime, bergamot, vanilla and mint. This Linkwood 2007 has a very "Clynelish" profile, with notes of wax, honey, an ounce of smoke (very light) and a minerality that adds a nice complexity. In the background, there is a touch of pepper and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      A soft and silky texture that gives us notes of candied citrus, liquorice, green tea. We change a little register here, the mineral side really taking over. The notes of white fruits (pear, apple) bring a bit of crunchiness, the honey of sweetness, liquorice and mint of freshness, candied citrus a nice texture and minerality an extra dimension. Although it lacks a bit of complexity and precision, this Linkwood 2007 from Mossburn is perfectly balanced.
    • Finish
      Moderately persistent, on mineral notes, slightly smoked and fresh. Liquorice and pepper stay in the mouth for a long time.
