For official Linkwood releases one needs to turn to the Flora & Fauna or Rare Malts Selection series. Or the Manager’s Choice that appeared in 2009. If you want to try another Linkwood, you need to turn to the independent bottlers. This release by Berry Bros & Rudd from London is a single cask at drinking strength. This is the twentieth Linkwood I try. It is very pale.
Fresh and soft nose on apples and lemongrass, breakfast cereals and a touch of wood glue. Some vanilla and a hint of coconut. Mildly floral. Soft and accessible – aperitif style.
Light arrival. Again those breakfast cereals with sugar (Frosties) and some apples and vanilla. Pear? All rather ordinary – although that sounds too pejorative.
The finish is short and warming, but offers nothing new.
A very ordinary Linkwood, that does not credit to the age. A small aperitif.
