  1. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Tasted this extremely fruity Linkwood @ Slijterij Henk Peter.
    Brilliant summer dram! Despite high ABV.
    • Nose
      Very fruity - pear and melon. Citrus, vanilla, rum bonbon with banana and some stable notes.
    • Taste
      Again very fruity. Foam banana candy, herbal and some spices. Rose hip, honey, champagne, green lemonade (reine claude) and finally crème brûlée.
    • Finish
      Creamy, sweet malt with pear and banana porridge.

  2. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nice fruity Linkwood with subtle, complementary rum notes. The rum cask used is from a very sippable and rather light Tenneriffa rum. Fun dram + the whisky surpasses the rum in quality imho.

  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very intense whisky, but beside the heavy alcohol also a lot of fresh, sweet and fruity notes. Very pleasant for sure.

      Very fresh, fruity: citrus, lime, pear. Also some vanilla sweetness, candy, 'schuimblokken'. Quite some alcohol. Also some apple.
    • Taste

      Quite powerful to very intense actually. A lot of alcohol, a touch of bitterness, sweet and fruity. Citrus, pear, some peach.
    • Finish
      87 87
      A bit more smooth now, sweet and fruity, citrus, peach. Later on again a lot of alcohol, intense. Pretty long, candy sweetness.
