  2. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [July, 2016]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 5727 that I bought for77,50 Euro in December, 2002.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 87,5.  My notes state a typical fat and oily Rare Malts profile with floral and spicy notes.

  3. St. Pauli scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Quite a pleasant dram. It's different from most styles, that is what I love about Linkwood. The rather flowery style is one that might not be suited for everyone. 
    • Nose
      Light in style, with esters that remind of lemon zest, seville orange, green apple, and lots of flowers (e.g. lillies). It's a rather quiet style, with malty influences too (mainly somewhat dusty husks) and cereal. Then, vanilla, the creamy side (custard). Waiting pays off, as after a while, dried fruit emerges. Then there is also a note of marzipan, and a light grassy influence (mint).
    • Taste
      Full-bodied, oily, rather sweet, with nice acidity, and gaining peppery dryness towards the end. I didn't expect that after this nose, but it works very well! It's still very lemon-driven, with flowers (eau de cologne), vanilla cream, grass and quite some pepper and ginger. 
    • Finish
      Towards the end, oaky spices scream louder and louder: ginger and clove. Together with crisp lime juice, this makes a rather dry but pleasant finish. In the distance, dried fruit, vanilla and barley linger.
