  1. Joint86 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very decent malt. Both casks and alcohols give many interesting derivatives.
    The scent is the strongest point, but the other ingredients are also good. Perfectly balanced

      Saturated, complex. An excellent sherry bouquet of dried fruits, tobacco and leather is complemented by rotten foliage, nodules, flowers and cocoa
    • Taste

      Medium density, slightly oily. Strong tea, salted caramel, dark chocolate, metallic notes.
    • Finish

      Long, spicy, with a slight oaky bitterness. Knits a little

    NOse
    • Nose

      Sweet alcohol at first, later the barrell, woody notes, some herbal accents arrive. Followed by another round of sweetness and some oil paint. Then it becomes thicker sweet plums in chocolate with some filling but this is accompanied still by the strong alc presence. Later some minerals appear.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Dark dried fruits, some herbal hint and sweetness which quite quickly derives towards dryness. Like if you just had a dried hazelnut and its skin. Another sip, another round of taste. Now wood, warmth in the throat and alc still noticeable..
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium long, warm, woody, but fainting over the time into just woodiness.

    • Nose

      Nose - let it breathe for about 20 minutes. Very delicate and sophisticated aroma. Violets, some other flowers, ripe yellow fruits (mango?)
    • Taste
      90 90
      Saturated, dense, rounded. Sun-dried fruits, apricot, peach, jam.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Medium duration, sweet, peppery, sugary.

  13. RJKrueger scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A Linkwood for sherry lovers. The distillery character naturally falls by the wayside. Can be made and is also successful as a Sherry malt.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very nice sherry aroma, dark fruits, oranges and caramel. With a few drops of water it opens a little more.
    • Taste
      88 88
      It starts out very round, creamy, warm with more dark than sweet notes of sherry. Then it shows its barrel strength with a lot of power, volume and sharpness.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long aftertaste that remains towards the end towards wood and oak with light hints of liquorice.

    Sweet cream, black pepper, new wood, tart, bold jam, prunes, dried fruits

    Modern, young sherry “whisky” you may find plenty around. As flat as a pancake. I would not buy a bottle for even half of the market price.

  17. SpringBarley scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    I think this malt has a lot of character (and not only dark colour)!!!
    it can take some drops of water and needs some time to open (20-30 minutes)

      Linkwood 13y 58.4% Signatory CS collection. Bourbon Hogshead with a 7 month finish on a Fresh Sherry Butt. I had expected a lot from this and the scent also promises something beautiful, but ... the sherry finish dominates and the aftertaste is disappointingly short. I miss some balance in this dram. The alcohol is initially a bit predominant and with some water the balance is completely lost. Certainly not the best Linkwood I've had. Hopefully that some airtime will do this whisky some good !!

    Great full-bodied aroma, nice and spicy, lots of salty caramel, whole milk chocolate with fruits (chocolate raisins). With a few drops of water it becomes very supple. Absolutely top PLV!
