The Linkwood distillery holds a special in the heart of many enthusiasts, and for good reason. Boasting a charming combination of tradition and modernity, it produces a fairly niche single malt that is very representative of Speyside whiskies. Its key characteristics include a delicate mouthfeel, pure fruit and noble spices. This superb and extremely complex sherry cask bottling wonderfully embodies the Linkwood style, adding one deadly sin - greed.
Profile: the rich (sticky rice cake) initial nose also reveals a lovely exotic rancio. Allowed to breathe, it becomes increasingly fruity and spicy. The rich attack is delicately powdered (cocoa) and exotic (mango). The smooth finish is floral (wilted rose), spicy and luscious (coriander). Small Batch of 5 casks – refill sherry hogsheads. Exclusive to LMDW.
