    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 660 bottles from cask no 4816
    A famous blending whisky, Linkwood is not that well known as a single malt. The distillery stands close to Elgin (‘The Malt Whisky Capital’) and was founded in 1820. The bottling is made from a refill sherry butt and has an attractive pale mahogany colour. The nose-feel is mild and the first aromas are of dried fruit (apricots and sultanas), fresh linen and scrambled eggs (often found in sherry-wood). The addition of a little water rounds off the aroma and introduces treacle toffee and liquorice, with some ground nuts and an interesting scorched cloth/ironing board note. The flavour is smooth and sweet, with the nuts and treacle toffee coming through; mouth drying (from tannins in the oak) and dry in the finish. An any-time dram.
