    Fantastic sherried Linkwood. Quite comfortable despite it's strength and sherry butt maturation. Baked apples in the aftertaste point to the name on the label))
    Great dram!
    P.S. If you wait enough you'll get more oloroso style aroma

  2. KonstUA scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Nose 22, taste 22, finish 22, balance 22

  3. Kensay scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Nose powerful, fruity, ripe cherries, dried apples and apricots
    Taste - tart sweet pear, compote from dried fruits
    The finish is tart with a slight bitterness, sweet pears
