Nose : Very fruity and aromatic. Plums, apples, pears, apricots. Lots of honey too. Some citrusy notes and a bit of vanilla. With aeration, underwood.

Mouth : Fruits and honey from the nose, spices from the oak. Some mint. Slightly bitter.

Finish : Long, orangey, drying.


Very good nose but the mouth was a tad bitter.

Tasting Notes by Johan, 'Onversneden';

Linkwood 26y 1984/2011 ‘Eleanor Whisky’, 49.2%, The Whiskyman, 88 bottles
Mmm, heerlijke zachte neus in de stijl van Clynelish 1982. Van de betere Clynelish 1982 dan nog. Zoet, fruitig en wreed waxy. Bijenwas, antiekwas, geboend leder. Peer en perzik. Dan ook sinaas. Licht grassig, alhoewel niet zozeer gras, eerder heide. En honing. Clynelish meets Highland Park. Dan aarde en humus. En dennennaalden. Yep, een wandeling door een (nat) naaldbos. Evolueert zeer mooi. Doet me wat denken een zoete witte wijn (en ik heb het dus niet over goedkope liebfraumilch). Een beetje zachte eik, puur ondersteunend, dragend. Ronduit prachtige neus. De smaak is zijdezacht en boterig. Eerst abrikoos, sinaas, honing, kandijsuiker, bijenwas en pollen. Dan wat eik en kruiden (nootmuskaat, zoethout en munt), maar ook hier als extra dimensie, het komt er naast, het gaat er nooit over. Hé, zelfs een beetje tropisch fruit… meloen, ja, duidelijk wat meloen op de achtergrond. Water? Nhaaa. Lange, ronde, zoete afdronk met een heerlijke prikkelende kruidigheid. Zalige Linkwood, en vreselijk drinkbaar. Na de Port Ellen 1983 opnieuw een geweldige vatselectie van Dominiek. 91/100

Color
Old gold
Nose

Aromatic and rather sweet, with fruity elements (apple, apricot, orange). Nicely balanced by some mint and heather. Hints of orange blossom. Excellent beehive notes as well (beeswax, honey, pollen). A hint of vanilla. Fresh oak. Over time it develops some damp earthy notes (not sure about this, but at least it doesn't bring down the otherwise very attractive nose).

Taste

Quite fruity again (oranges, apples, pineapple) with honey and a malty base. Elegant spicy notes from the oak (mint, ginger, anise, peppermint). A little heather again. Well-balanced with a gentle woody kick giving it some depth.

Finish

Long and warm, with fruits and drier notes from the wood.

Comments

One of the best Linkwoods I've had so far. Great Speyside fruitiness with balanced spices.
