Whisky Reviews for Linkwood 12-year-old

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.94 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Again a solid entry level dram!
    • Nose
      Young, and with the Linkwood character: fruit, a bit flowery (perfumed), moderately malty. Pear, tangerine, red apples, lillies, raisins, pastry, and grass and vanilla. 
    • Taste
      The palate is rather malty, with the wood in a more prominent role. There is vanilla, coconut shavings, and then more citric fruit (tangerine, sweet lemon). The flowery aspect is still there. 
    • Finish
      A pleasant, slightly acidic finish on fresh fruit, coconut, a bit of oak, and some pepper.

  4. Defeatless scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Sweet, fresh sawdust, marzipan, hint of kiwi, citrus and other exotic fruits.

    Taste:
    Fresh, delicate sweetness. Some wood-shavings, marzipan. Feels a bit immature although 12yo. There is also some bourbon barrel influence, with vanilla and cream.

    Body:
    rather full

    Finish:
    Medium length. The bourbon influence is getting more clear now. Vanilla, cream and some wood. A little bit tannin’s are here.

    Price:
    Don't pay over €50,-

    Presentation:
    As all of the F&F range: good!
