Whisky Reviews for Linkwood 1987 CA

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.18 points

  1. jazzpianofingers did not rate this whisky Connoisseur


    N: This straight dunnage-y>floral<malt profile is so familiar that I know I’m going to kick myself when it’s revealed. Shredded wheat and cereal putty also plays a part.

    T: Edgy yet firm & rich straw barley arrival - in hindsight, a firm Linkwood trait.

    F: Straight, creamy barley finish, the strength somewhat biting.

    C: I haven’t had a Linkwood for ages! Sharing similar qualities, I had wondered whether it was a Mannochmore - both of which I’m a fan. Amazingly, this is not from a bourbon cask but sherry refill. Unusually, I didn’t write down a score. Around a B[+] probably.

    Creamy sweet fruit
    • Nose
      Lemon zest, very smooth vanilla ice cream with tinned peaches,
    • Taste
      Smell of dunnage earth floor found, aniseed too, dried apricots and figs found.
    • Finish
      Very nice, little bit dry in the aftertaste, coffee notes found, cinnamon sticks, raisins, and cocos.
