Whisky Reviews for Linkwood 10-year-old JE

  1. YosemiteSam scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Delicious! Finally an honest Linkwood on bourbon barrel again. Lately, only those sherry bombs from wet sherry casks have hit the market. By now we better just buy a bottle of sherry.

      Fruity and sweet. Citrus, apples, vanilla and wild flowers.

      Firm for a Speysider, greasy in the glass and on the tongue, sweet, honey, vanilla, citrus and apples. A slightly bitter, very tasty! The legs remain in the glass for a long time.
    • Finish

      The finish is long. Fruit, honey and again the slight bitterness.
      A very successful Linkwood!

  5. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Pretty strong whisky for its Abv of 46%, a lot of fruity and fresh notes, with also some sweetness and in the finish some bitter notes as well. Pretty nice one for sure.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Very fruity, citrus, oranges. Pretty much alcohol. A lot of pear as well, some vanilla sweetness, and floral.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Smooth, then some tickering feeling on the tongue. A lot of fresh fruit, tangerine, and some sweetness like vanilla and caramel.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Now it gets more powerful, pepper. Fruity and a little bitter, grapefruit. Pretty long, honey, some peach, orange zest.
