12-Year-Old LinkwoodRegular price£94.99 Sale price
Originated on the edge of Elgin at Linkwood Distillery, Speyside. A hearty number matured in a bourbon barrel, before a month spent in a virgin oak cask. Golden in colour, goliath in character. Tangled aromas: sweet honey, toasted oak, dried fruit. Smooth and creamy to imbibe, with lightly spiced undertones.
|Finishing Cask||Virgin Oak Barrel|
Allspice, vanilla and herbal notes make for an aromatic nose, balanced by sweet cereal. Nectarous caramel in each sip. Barley. Spicy sparks. A leisurely finish, with subtle oak and that opening sweetness echoed.
A lingering culmination. Oaky, exotic vanilla, nippy tannins – delicious details from its dual shifts in wood.
SOME NICE SNAPS
Despite being a fairly small region geographically, Speyside holds the mother lode of Scotland’s single malt distilleries. In fact, more than half of all the nation’s whisky houses are situated here. Its drams are prized for their elegance and complexity. Sweet. An array of fruity flavours. Vanilla and oak. The odd smoky note.
