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.
