1 of only 113 bottles from cask no. 5266Another woefully small amount from a Linkwood cask – a great shame, but the whisky is worth every last drop! Deep coppery gold with good beading. Immediately wine gums, Cape Gooseberries and Camp coffee (a coffee essence, once quite famous, made in Scotland to provide coffee on the move); behind these, school desks and polished church pews, with a whiff of coal dust in the distance. Water changes it, introducing a tart, lime-like scent (Pisco sour), with dusty coconut, tangy tangerine peel and Fruit Gums. Fresh, sweet and somewhat peppery to taste, with a return of the coal dust in the slightly dry finish. Medium length, but the flavour continues to develop.
