Linkwood always evokes thoughts of sweetmeats. This one seems a particularly sweet interpetation.
12 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Extremely fragrant, floral, rose-like.
Palate: Angelica. Indian desserts. Condensed milk.
Finish: Balancing almondy dryness. Spicy, becoming quite hot. Extraordinarily long.
Comment: Linkwood always evokes thoughts of sweetmeats. This one seems a particularly sweet interpetation.
Nose: Lifted, intense and perfumed: jasmine/muscat grapes, cut grass and apple blossom with hints of crisp malt.
Palate: A light aromatic mouthful with a silky quality that keeps it rooted in the mouth. Even a hint of pepper.
Comment: Malts which waft delicately about are deeply unfashionable in these blockbuster times but this is the perfect aperitif.
