    Very bourbon-heavy, great Linkwood, yes, he doesn't have the great variety in the mouth, the nose deserves 2 points more than the rest, but still a great package without any missing notes.

  3. Hemdl scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Really beautiful nose that leaves nothing to be desired. Whole fruit baskets open up to this wonderfully balanced vanilla and honey. Tasty also really nice, only the (too) strong oak and slight bittern notes in the finish here hail a top grade.

    Really nice malt, for currently (November 2018) just under 700 € the bottle but there are also quite pleasant alternatives.
