Whisky Reviews for Linkwood 1997 CWC

  1. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This one features fruity notes which are partly out of the ordinary (see other reviewers), very interesting, maybe not as quaffable as some of your standard malts from a hogshead. For a moment I was reminded of an Irish Whisky (malt, not single pot still, mind you). Good addition to your liquid library.

    Wonderful on the nose, complex on the palate with a short finish. Nice fruit and sweetness.
    • Nose
      First a little red grapes with citrus fruits. They are probably oranges. The alcohol cools the nose without really disturbing or tickling. Dark heavy forest honey comes after a few minutes and hand warmth.
    • Taste
      Fruity, sweet and tasty. Soft and yet intense. Salivation ons. Round and balanced, elegant, very complex. I find it difficult to describe the flavors more closely.
    • Finish
      First, the fruity sweetness that dominates for a while dominates. Then it gets drier and the oak of the barrel comes out, but only weakly. First, a short finish. For further slaps then persist medium long.
