  1. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The nose was such a grower, started off basic an lacklustre but gracefully develop into some solid.
    The palate didn't live up to the nose an the finish was the ending nobody would wish for.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Butter and vanilla, notes of honeycomb creeping in. Some overripe pineapple which is starting to go soft and turning orange. Some hints of lemon and grassier elements join the party.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Big on the honeycomb with touches of toffee sweetness. A warming spice tingles the tongue with some added sour notes which start to hurt the better sweet notes.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Big on the sour oak, strong wood influence coming into play. Notes of the earlier sour lemon with a touch of burnt sugar end it off.

    Very drinkable and tasty, too. No big show, no overselling. Just a solid Linkwood. What's not to like about that? Full review (german):

    Tasted at Vroenhovense Whiskyfeesten 2017 1/13

  8. Bishlouk scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Vanilla, pear, light woody dust, freshly cut and juicy fruit. And even a little iodine, far off? Taste: Spices, vanilla, apple, lemony acidity, and caramelized waves. Finale: Peppermint lemon. Final powerful enough on spices that remain stuck to the gums. Verdict: A classic bourbon profile. The nose is great, especially during aeration. The mouth, very spicy, is less sexy.
