Whisky Reviews for Linkwood 1990 GM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.19 points

  1. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The nose is an event. A fruit bomb with sherry. Great. The taste is then closer to the expectation: a lot of dark sherry, coffee and caramel with wild berries.

    Certainly an excellent sherry whisky.
    • Nose
      Wow. Sweet, black blackberries, currant jelly, strawberry cream sweets and toffees. From the back mango (or was it papaya? Anyway something exotic) comes into play and joins with the rest to a sugar-sweet fruit cocktail that is rumbled with brown sugar and caramelized with a good shot of sherry.
      A great nose. The sherry is not nearly as pressing, as you could imagine. He leaves the fruit a lot of play.
      After the first tasting, the sherry is clearly more dominant, but the fruit bomb does not go without a fight.
    • Taste
      Creamy on the tongue. Now the sherry is much clearer and takes the helm. Lots of sherry, some forest berries prevailed, a hint of jam. Caramel and toffee. Behind it some oak and coffee.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. Coffee, dark chocolate and sherry. The strawberry cream sweets remain for a while.

    A sherry monster that no one can dislike.
    • Nose
      Wonderful nose. Fruity and earthy. And lots of sherry notes.
    • Taste
      Smooth taste, lots and lots of sherry, and taste like a damp basement, in a good way.
    • Finish
      Long finish, starts of sweet and smooth and ends very peppery, very good.
