Linkwood 18 Year Old Batch 6 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company) 500ml
An indie bottling of 18 year old single malt from the Linkwood distillery. As it's a That Boutique-y Whisky Company, bottling, it features a label hinting at something from the distillery's history - this time, it's that Linkwood began as one distillery, then a distillery was built next to it.
In time, that original distillery was closed and the newer one took the Linkwood name. But it's still Linkwood, right? All this is done via a reference to a popular British sitcom. This one's got layers like an onion.
Nose: Buttered toast, popcorn and fudge, then honeydew melon follows. Gristy barley, hot chocolate and cut grass emerge as the nose develops.
Palate: Warming oak and more dried grass, then floral honey, wood spice and yellow fruits. A little white pepper is present as well.
Finish: Full and warming, with some orchard fruit.
