    The fruits are intense from the first nose, as often with this distillery. Reine-claudes, Mirabelle plums, bananas, Italia and Muscat grapes, exotic fruits, maracuja, papaya, prickly pear, all very ripe. But it's also austere, ennobled by the wood, a little greasy, very luscious, ethereal. A few bursts of honey. Very complex mouth, with various spices, cumin, gray pepper, paprika, cinnamon, nutmeg, and the intensity of the fruit always present, it is quite close to tea at times, but it is sweet too. An ounce of indulgence, with sponge cake and pastry cream. The finish is huge, destructive, very long, sparkling, sandy, and of course, fruity. Compote of pears.

    An excellent Linkwood bottling.
    • Nose
      Notes of orangecake and caramel at first nosing. The aroma of stewed pears is coming up. Very elegant and well matured - a lovely nose.
    • Taste
      Powerful and oily with notes of toffee, tea and liquorice. Slightly fruity as well. Very nice.
    • Finish
      Dominated by liquorice aromas.

    Cadenhead's own tasting notes:

    Nose:
    Salted caramel; multi seed bread. Salted butter with faint medicinal notes.
    Palate:
    Heavier than the nose suggests. Baked apples; dried apricots with walnuts and slightly earthy.
    Finish:
    Initially fruit cocktail in syrup before drying out with coal dust and toasted brown bread.
