WHISKY TASTING NOTES
Nose: Sweet malt in a fruit basket of green grapes, pear and kiwi alongside green tea and just a hint of cinnamon.
Palate: Initially, you get green grapes, pear and kiwi before oak, cinnamon, and green tea develop and make themselves known.
Finish: Long and rich with the green grapes, kiwi, oak and cinnamon continuing to evolve long after the last sip.
Rumour has it that in the 1930s, Linkwood was so dedicated to maintaining it’s distinct flavours that even spiders’ webs were not removed from the warehouses for fear of changing the whisky’s character. We love that kind of attention to detail and dedication to producing consistently good whisky. And this scotch shows exactly why that character is worth such fanatical attention to detail. When you make whisky this good, you don’t want to change it.
