  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This Linkwood 2006 16 Years could use a little more polish on the palate, but the nose is very attractive, albeit fairly gentle.
    • Nose
      Touches of lemon curd with grainy pears and apple peel. Overall a lovely fruity nose, but I also get barley husks, maple syrup and a whiff of nail varnish.
    • Taste
      Fairly creamy mouthfeel and the arrival is somewhat hot. A pinch of chili peppers. There’s some subtle oak, cloves and roasted hazelnuts, but also a nice minerality, elderflower liqueur, orange peels and overripe red apple.
    • Finish
      Somewhat grassy and herbal, but ending on orchard fruits.

    Nose: Key lime pies to start with, then we’re off to granny smith apples, green pears sliced and placed on top of muesli , drizzled with syrup (or honey?!) , then getting a bit mineral and floral with a hint of fresh camomile pollen and cereals. Light, zesty and fresh.

    Palate: Starting with some spice heat (white pepper, ginger?) then more cereals and baked bread, alongside the zesty lemon, and a toutch of green sour kiwis, hints of floral notes (can’t really place the actual flower, but you get what i mean, right?), green grapes creamy barley, and wood.

    Finish: More barley notes, bitter grape pith, lemon rind and grass.
