  1. GLEN MAUR did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting note by Serge Valentin

    Linkwood 1990/2006 (45%, Samaroli, Coilltean, sherry wood, cask #4203) Colour: full gold. Nose: starts quite assertively, on crystallized oranges, toffee, mocha and caramelised nuts and developing on honey, a little wood smoke, coffee and raisins. More than perfect, compact and extremely satisfying. Very clean sherry. Mouth: very beautiful sherry again, very candied and toffeeish, not winey at all. Again lots of sultanas, cappuccino, crystallised oranges, vanilla fudge. Pure confectionery. Finish: more of the same and for a rather long time, with added notes of liquorice allsorts. Pure pleasure. 87 points.

    Wonderfully balanced overall and a top choice Samaroli^^
    • Nose
      Bold sherry notes with some chocolaty background
    • Taste
      Oloroso sherry, mocha chocolate, almonds and vanilla traces. An alluring combination...tremendous balance
    • Finish
      Sweet but not sickly to the end...no sourness, only a longing for more.
