    Long time fan of cadenhead but not particularly Linkwood. This was somewhat of a gamble purchase when I was in Edinburgh 2019. Purchased at the Cadenhead Shop.

    Nose: gorgeous tropical fruit notes, pineapple, limes and peach.

    Taste: grilled guava and orange zest, more tropical notes, honey, pear , Granny Smith apple, very tart.

    Finish: medium long.

    Thoughts: wonderfully constructed whisky, ticking all the right boxes, great nose and full bodied fun, I’ve revisited several times after opening and it gets better and better each time. I will look closely at future Cadenhead linkwood between 20-25 years old and it came in at a reasonable price for a 20+ year old whisky.

  5. Mascht scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A breakfast whisky with great cereal notes
    • Nose
      89 89
      Intense and fresh after vanilla, grass, lemon, oatmeal, orange jam, some green mint, some moldy leaves and fudge
    • Taste
      86 86
      mild, dry and a bit watery, lots of grain again, plus mustard seeds and toffee
    • Finish
      87 87
      long and very dry, herbs and a mix of spices remain

  6. grinface scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    This is a very delicious malt and I really enjoy it! It has been a while that I have put a whisky in the category "breakfast" so clearly. At the same time he still has a nice twist in the finish. Just great! Full review (in german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2019/11/06/into-the-linkwoods/

  7. Jackson05 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    N: vanilla, dry grass, honeydew melon, liquid honey, faint wax
    T: light and delicate, toast, honey, caramel
    F: cardboard, oaky, caramel, dry. Very dry.

    Nose is the best part. Gets overly dry in The finish. It’s ok. Falls in the unremarkable category.
