Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fudge. Creamy oriental desserts.
Palate: Teasing balance of rosewater, marzipan sweetness and cedary dryness. Beautifully combined flavours.
Finish: Big, almondy. Like chewing on halva. Long, lingering soothing.
Comment: Linkwood is a lovely whisky, especially in its older incarnations.
8.5
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Slightly tired with fading malt supplemented by ripe cherry.
Palate: A spicy start only tends to disguise the over eager oak.
Finish: Dry and oaky.
Comment: Old and awaiting the grim reaper.
