- Nose 22.5, taste 22, finish 21.5, balance 22
- Strong powerful whisky, with a lot of fresh, fruity and sweet notes.
Fresh and friendly, pretty strong, a lot of alcohol. Fruity, citrus, pear, melon, grassy as well. Even a glimpse of chlorine, and some licorice.
Strong, licorice, orange, honey. A lot of alcohol, some caramel. Also a bit floral, and nutty.
Still pretty strong, licorice, orange, honey, some oak influence. Pretty long finish, also some tobacco in the end.
- What a powerful sensation, I love this. Best Linkwood so far.
I was lucky to get to take the last drops of this bottle with me after the 2019 New Year's BYO by the Usquebaugh Society. Thanks again!
Strong. Burnt brown sugar, honey, mint, crushed sea shells, vanilla sticks, caramel, salt, nuts, some yellow fruit, some citrus,
Thick and oily. First sweet. Honey and citrus, vanilla and caramel, then the dram comes crushing in from all sides with strong, salty, peppery hay. Honey drips and sticks to all sides of the mouth,
leaving a strong trace of burnt, brown sugar in it's trace. Some musty hay and sticky honey appear in the aftermath in small waves.
Only slightly bitter and slightly drying in the end.
