  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 90 points Photo Moderator

    Powerful but well balanced - no water needed actually, good complexity, nice fruitiness and some coastal touch, could well be a good old Clynelish, reasonable price tag - very good!

  7. Larry411 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Stewed honeyed pears, charred oak, white pepper, spritz of moderately hot peppers, pink vanilla wafers, banana custard, pulpy orange juice, tea tree oil with dissolved white sugar, coconut oil, and some cream soda showing up late in the finish. It's elegant and lovely.

  8. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Citric and mineral fruit salad, apple, pineapple, vanilla, banana, custard cream, really nice

    C: Another on-point Linkwood. As delicious as the 11yo, plus one.

  10. Toffie76 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    nice one, pleasing but complex too. The addition of a small amount of water enhanced my experience. Be carefull with that part as "A little goes far" rule applies here ;)
