Distilled at the Linkwood Distillery on 7 April 2001, this Linkwood was bottled on 24 Oktober 2014, making it 13 years old. A.D. Rattray bottled it at cask strength. The bourbon hogshead yielded 318 bottles. I discovered this Linkwood at Global Spirits Expo in Antwerp on 18th June 2017. It is one of the palest Linkwood I have ever tried.

Wonderfully fruity on apples and pears, with a slice of kiwi in the mix. A hint of peach. Almost tropical. Totally devoid of spices, you would be forgiven to confuse this with a lemonade on steroids. Honey by the bucket.

The arrival is powerful, but not scorching. Again mildly tropical with a soft spiciness, now, that warms the mouth completely. Pepper, cloves, nutmeg, liquorice, it’s got it all.

The finish is long, warm and sweet.

Lovely, fruity Linkwood at a good strength.
