  1. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    I really expected it to be very spirit-like, but it isn’t. It has quite a lot of cask influence for such a young single malt. Very nice nose, although the taste remains somewhat behind. But not bad at all. Very nice to be able to taste such a young and above all surprising Linkwood!
    • Nose
      Powdering sugar. A hint of oatmeal and tea biscuits. Pears and red apples, but also unripe bananas and a hint of peaches. Some vanilla. And later also lemons in the back.
    • Taste
      Also oatmeal here but very in the back. Lots of pears too though. Powdering sugar and vanilla. And plenty of fennel. Slightly peppery, pink peppercorns. Also a touch of ginger.
    • Finish
      Mid-long and quite spicy, pink peppercorns mostly, but also pears and apples again.

    I didn't quite know what to expect from a 4-year-old Linkwood, but I'm mostly pleasantly surprised. The nose is actually attractive and well-rounded, while the palate could do with a little more depth. But overall a satisfactory pick by Torsten Paul Whisky Company.
    • Nose
      Fresh, rather fruity and positively approachable. Some gentle stone fruits, lots of stewed apples and pears. Also a few wet pebbles and a hoppy note, accompanied by vanilla extract and a touch of sandalwood. This does not disappoint.
    • Taste
      Creamy mouthfeel quickly followed by a rather spicy arrival. Think white pepper and ginger, as well as some nutmeg. There’s a subtle chalkiness accompanied by meringues and a touch of fennel and icing sugar. I would advise to not add water (it brings out more spices), but I’m not going to stop you if you want to.
    • Finish
      The fruits make an encore on the palate. Orchard fruits, and some Love Hearts. Medium in length.

    Surprisingly good for such a young Linkwood!
    the nose is the best feature, in the finish you can taste that it is a bit young and short
    • Nose
      83 83
      lemon, yoghurt, fresh and fruity, some peaches and pears too. nothing too young or feisty.
    • Taste
      81 81
      soft honey and vanilla, and quite some fresh citrus fruits. it's less round than the nose and feels a tad youngish.
    • Finish
      79 79
      bit sweet, honey and sugar water, but also a bit hard and stale. here you can taste that is is on the younger side, but still nothing bad or unpleasant. Quite a good spirit this Linkwood
