  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A Linkwood that sins by its reduction. Too bad because it has a certain complexity and a certain charm. But the magic does not work entirely.
    • Nose
      81 81
      The nose doesn't tell much.
      It seems very watery ...
      Very light wax, apricot. Slight orange.
      We have a little dust.

      It's not fundamentally atrocious, but it is sorely lacking in intensity.

      With aeration, we have a little candied lemon zest. We go from 78/80 initially to 83 on the nose.
    • Taste
      83 83
      On the palate, it is in the same vein as the nose.
      We have an almost cardboard side.
      Wax, dried apricot, peach, white pepper.
      Grape skin.
      Light oaky rather successful and integrated.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Final on pepper, pear, wood, orange zest.
      Lightweight soap.
