A big Linkwood, but clearly from there.
1991, 20 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Nose: Oak backed with blueberry jam and cut with apple cider. Plump and scented and just a tiny hint of mustiness in the background.
Palate: Sweet and quite tongue coating. Icing sugar on stewed plums with a pleasant acidity. This cooked almost jammy effect continues across the tongue.
Finish: Long and clean.
Comment: A big Linkwood, but clearly from there.
Nose: Malty and fruity. Rich grassy character. Honey, dry hay, Victoria plums, ripe apricot. Summer in its glory !
Palate: Silky feel. Luscious fruity palette with fizzy ginger ale. Elegant and generous.
Finish: Dry but lingering and ending in a dovetail fruity display.
Comment: Plentiful. Uplifting. Skip the dessert and enjoy a liquid fruit basket.
