  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A very fruity and oily Linkwood. Especially the nose is very good.
    • Nose
      Polished oak. Sweet fruitiness of peaches and apricots. Some honey. Faint grassy notes and vanilla sticks.
    • Taste
      Oily and waxy. Juicy oak. Buttery notes. Some peppery spices and humus. Liquorice and nutmeg. Slightly smoky as well.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Gingery. Becomes quite bitter later on. Even some salt.

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      91 91
      Lovely nose. Deeply honeyed, sweet, and citrusy dram, with sugared ginger.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Warming, sweet, and fruity. A continuation of the terrific nose. There's definitely some wood spice here though.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Moderate length.

      Opens up the longer it's in the glass. No off flavors. I bought this almost ten years ago, forgot I had it, and now that it's opened, realize how cheap it was back in the days for such a good bottle. Nowadays, prices would be 3x as much easy.
