    • Nose

      Typical Linkwood starts with delicate floral notes, slightly metallic accents, honey, malt, nut butter and delicate smoke. Gradually, the fruity sherry influence comes more into play. Pickled cherries and raspberries as well as soft earthy tones.
      With water: more floral and beautiful like tea roses, some dried fruit and oranges.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Starts out oily and quite spicy. Pithy oak, sherry and again slightly metallic accents. Flowery notes and delicate smoke slowly follow. In contrast to the nose, the sherry does not manage to have a supportive effect and increase the complexity ... a shame.
      With water: more flowery, fragrant and typical of the distillery. Juicy oranges, malt and oak follow slowly.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium long, fruity and sherry-tinged

    Color: amber

    Nose: porridge with cherries, vanilla, oak. Simply a wonderful fruit potpurri to drop in. A bit of ginger spiciness. Toasted oatmeal, hay ,. some iodine.

    Palate: great! Great start, powerful but to the point. Perfect balance, off, yeah what? Spices, dried fruits, ginger, creamy sweetness paired with herbal freshness, great!

    87 points.

  10. Suevia scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Solid dram without any real depth, character or anything to remember it by. The sherry influence feels not well integrated.
