  1. coryfin scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    "Grapefruit sorbet with a drop of bitterness"

  2. Jonkers scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This whisky is reasonably in balance although the nose remains the most (by me) valued component.
    • Nose
      Dried grass and vanilla. Tropical fruit but also green apples. A hint of butter and floral. Very fresh and sweet.
    • Taste
      A small but pleasant bitterness. Green apples and vanilla. Also confit lime.
    • Finish
      Mid-length. Sweet with a nice pepper.

  4. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Pancake nose with pineapples and fresh bananas. A sweet one.
    T: Green and potent nose, strong and flavoursome even neat.
    F: Grain=oak with a solid and classical bourbon cask malt finish
    C: Nice but uneventful by Linkwood standards.

    Scores a B-

  5. D3US scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    If you like the fresh, mellow, floral, summery flavour profile, you will like this. I know I do. I seem to be a bit above the average rating here, but this really suits me. 
    • Nose
      Fresh, floral, mellow. Cereal notes and vanilla. Flowery, nectar-like. Some tropical fruit (pineapple?). Grain cookies. Fine malt, really crisp and refreshing. 
    • Taste
      Cereal and vanilla again, warming. Lighter fruits now; Pineapple again but also green apple, lemon and apricot. Only a hint of bitterness, liquorice or oak. Very tasty, this goes down easy.
    • Finish
      Not that long, but it's quite nice. This vanilla, fresh malt, fruity and cereal notes combine really well. The bitter note is gone now. 

  6. Falnor scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Not very recognisable as a sherry butt.
    • Nose
      Light and floral, vanilla ice cream, sweet bananas, grapefruit
    • Taste
      Grains and citrus fruit, lime, melon wich gives it a little bit more character
    • Finish
      Medium long, sweet, not oaky
