  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Lovely, fruity Linkwood at a good strength.
    • Nose
      Wonderfully fruity on apples and pears, with a slice of kiwi in the mix. A hint of peach. Almost tropical. Totally devoid of spices, you would be forgiven to confuse this with a lemonade on steroids. Honey by the bucket.
    • Taste
      The arrival is powerful, but not scorching. Again mildly tropical with a soft spiciness, now, that warms the mouth completely. Pepper, cloves, nutmeg, liquorice, it’s got it all.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, warm and sweet.

  2. Torfding scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A great, varied nose that surprises again and again. Although it pays to keep on sniffing and discovering new flavors over a longer period of time, the malt leaves something else, the longer it stays in the air, it looks a bit more unpleasant later.
    • Nose
      fresh and fruity (especially sour fruits, green apple, pineapple, kiwi), a lot of pear and thin pear juice, lemon ice cream, always slightly earthy and burned;
      An initially slightly cherry and schnappige note (Mon Cherie) passes quickly and also the fruity notes with the time in the air, while cold caramel, latte and custard added
    • Taste
      Milk coffee, marzipan, vanilla, many bright fruit notes with a hint of bitterness, becomes sweeter and more peppery in the mouth
    • Finish
      long; sweet, fruity (a little pear) and spicy, slightly peppery

    Full of nose carnival! This is something for experimentation friends, just try alternating with the dropwise addition of water / whisky, which can be tickled out by flavors! (And he still tastes - for 65 € -> buy!)
    • Nose
      starts fresh-fruity (pear, pineapple, lime), then put sweet-baked aromas over it, with a drop of water you can again attract the fruits (this time green, apple, kiwi) until it is burned again ... and slightly earthy ... another drop of water ... is strawberry coming ... interesting game!
    • Taste
      pleasantly creamy-sweet, milk chocolate / coffee, some nougat and marzipan - sounds actually boring, but is delicious ;-) ... but there is still something exotic-fruity-bitter ... and a peppery kick
    • Finish
      long and sweet, peppery milk chocolate
