Whisky Reviews for Linkwood 1990 AD

  1. recursiewhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This dram again needs some time to open up in your glass, give it that time! A wee drop of water can help you here. Your patience is well rewarded with uncomplicated but lovely aromas. There is, next to the obvious sweet side, a savory side to discover in this dram. Somehow Linkwood seems to age well in both ex-sherry wood and ex-bourbon casks.
    All in all a lovely fruity Linkwood with subtle savory tones.
    • Nose
      A soft, sweet, subtle and sweet whisky with aromas of berries (gooseberries, strawberries), green apples, banana peels, pear, floral tones, white pepper, subtle licorice tones, marzipan, vanilla, roasted almonds, cashew nuts, apple sauce, hint of yeast, cedarwood, berry jam, subtle brown sugar, marmalade and charred oak.
    • Taste
      A rich, sweet, fruity and powerful whisky with aromas of honey, pepper, tannins, candied ginger, floral tones, grass, dunnage warehouses, earthy tones, maple syrup, star anise, fennel seeds, boiled sweets, hint of Chinese master stock, apple, apricots, licorice roots, cinnamon, vanilla and spicy oak.
    • Finish
      A long, sweet and slightly drying finish with aromas of backing spices, fresh fruits, berries, tannins, honey, vanilla and dry oak.
