    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1of 260 bottles from cask no. 4495
    Many blenders would position Linkwood as the‘classic’ Speyside malt, and it has long been ranked ‘Top Class’. This is drawn from a refill American oak hogshead, which has given the whisky a deep gold colour, shot with bronze. A mild ose-feel, with only a trace of prickle, allows a deep, fruity/nutty aroma to emerge: dry fruit-cake, dates, slightly mouldy oranges and apricots, almonds (rather, dry marzipan), with honey behind. The whole complex it reminiscent of heavily botrytised wine. With water the fruitiness becomes less intense, but remains, now joined by brown sugar and fresh vinyl (new car fascias). The mouthfeel is pleasantly smooth; the flavour a nice balance – sweetish then dryish, with medium length and leaving an attractive aftertaste of almonds. Sophisticated and easy drinking whisky.
