  1. nallacam scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    With the facelift there was also a change in taste. Not so good / fresh barrels in my opinion.
    It's still a good malt, but it slips a bit into midfield.

      Cut flowers, fresh hay, green apple. Are there some berries in the background? I'm not sure. The sherry casks are not exactly in the nose ...
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet-spicy onset, beautiful body, with the time even creamier - I like that! In the beginning honey and pepper, light spicy oak, the fruits are more noticeable here, but not exactly dominant
    • Finish
      80 80
      Short and dry. Unfortunately, the level of the palate can not last.

  7. craide scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful easy to drink Linkwood.
    But you should drink rather quickly because otherwise he is bland and bleak fast. Otherwise ok.
    • Nose

      There are, for me Linkwood typical, beautiful fresh floral notes. Fresh hay, flower meadow, some lavender. In addition, fruity aromas of green apple, raspberries and a pleasant grapefruit.
      Alcohol does not seem to be so well integrated. Slight stinging in the nose.
      Freshly opened, there are beautiful flavors.
      Fades after some time in the glass and is rather one-dimensional, it's a pity.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Direct start with a light honey sweetness, to light spicy notes with predominantly pepper. Will be a little softer and creamier. Fruits are there, but not so noticeable. Goes over in milk chocolate.
      Easy to drink, tastes good. But nothing is exciting.
    • Finish
      82 82
      In short, some pepper, will dry easily. unfortunately unspectacular,

    Bottler's tasting notes:
    Aroma: Fruity and fresh, dry Sherry, ripe strawberry, and raspberry aromas highlighted by a light lemon-citrus edge. Tangy orange marmalade develops and combines with warm cinnamon and toffee.
    Taste: Initially intensely sweet; mellowing with time and the gentle and warming spice flavours of cinnamon and clove. Creamy white chocolate develops and entwines with a juicy tangerine edge.
    Finish: Medium and rounded with fresh herbal tones and a slightly drying cocoa powder edge.
