A very fine example of a well aged Linkwood. The sherry and wood do not overpower the fruity/floral characters of the Linkwood. It’s quite closed at the start and needs some aeration time and warming. A wee drop of water can help you here but be careful as with too much water the palate becomes quite bitter and spicy. The wood spices and the fresh fruity character of this dram is simply mouthwatering.
All in all a well aged and lush Linkwood
