  1. YosemiteSam scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    This Linkwood is quite different in smell, but the taste is typical Linkwood. A young but exciting whisky from this distillery.

  2. keizerjos scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Subtle soft nose that demands and deserves attention and time. There is a very soft vanilla component that I really like. In the taste again a lot of sweet, fruit, with an emphatic strawberry taste in the aftertaste. The fellow tasters also talk about caramel (agree) and foam blocks (disagree). Great whisky this, despite the fact that I like to taste a bit more bite and character in my favorites. These classic Speysiders are not very recalcitrant.
