Whisky Reviews for Linkwood 1991 JB

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.63 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Beautiful presence. Prunes, sulfur. Sherry ultra domineering. In the mouth, we find this with roundness due to age and spices. Imposing final. With a little water, the impression of power is reinforced on the nose, the spices are biting in the mouth. It's very good but a little nag!

    Enthusiasm 3/5

  2. recursiewhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    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
