  1. Cubey666 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    had the pleasure of meeting Patrick Vanderlinden at Whisky in Leiden 2018, and taste a selection of his Brachadair bottlings: the Linkwood, Mortlach, Invergordon, Ben Nevis and Ledaig.

    what a specacular Mortlach this is, bold and powerful, spicy with a big body!
