T: Straight away theres that bitter, oaky oiliness that ive come to associate with Linkwoods over the years. Water brings out the salty grain which when combined with the bitter wood oils creates an authentic liquorice. Its surprisingly sensitive to water, add too much and its very a simple grain-to-[fresh] aniseed, journey-to-finish.
F: Oaky, sour liquorice resonates. Water turns the liquorice to aniseed drops and its very bitter/fresh indeed.
C: I do love Linkwood’s but i didn’t quite ‘love’ any part of this. Its rather a classic, straight forward bourbon cask bottling, good but certainly two dimensional.
