  1. Danlow scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    The color (dark gold) is amazing.
    It rarely happens that I can blindly follow the manufacturer's tasting notes. It is the case here.
    Flowery and fruity (but not overly sweet) from Linkwood, but as a counterpoint a very active bourbon barrel with a lot of caramel (fudges) and rock candy, a little vanilla and a noticeable note of wood (middle-aged, noble wood).
    In addition to pears, bananas and the lychees, I also have ripe red apples in the cooked fruit compote.
    A little later in the taste and in the finish you have a memory of Hanuta (nut-chocolate-waffle mix) and still the wood. But that was it then.
    Best neat or with very little water!
    I have to give 88 points at this point, but I like ex-bourbon whisky and the Linkwood character. The two characters meet here ideally without losing anything or one dominating the other.
