Tasting note

  • Appearance : ambre à reflets roses.
  • Nose : onctueux, gourmand et finement boisé, le premier nez révèle des notes de moka, de café et de bonbon à la myrtille. Exotique (goyave), il évolue avec noblesse sur le tabac et sur les fleurs capiteuses (lys, iris).
  • Palate : à la fois délicate et tendue. A l’instar de la palette aromatique, elle se révèle très parfumée (violette). Des agrumes sucrés (orange, mandarine) s’effacent progressivement derrière des notes de loukoum et de caramel au beurre salé.
  • Overall : légèrement tannique et dotée d’une agréable amertume fruitée, elle se montre tonique. Son fruité gagne en intensité (gelée de pomme). Présence de notes crémeuses de marron et de café relevées par des épices (badiane, girofle).
The brand

The brand

Founded in 1821, Linkwood did not begin producing whisky until 1825. Located in Speyside, it remained in the hands of the Brown family until the end of the 1960s when it was destroyed, before being rebuilt in 1872. Following in the footsteps of many other distilleries, it fell into the hands of the Scottish Malt Distillers company in 1933 and played an active role in the development of numerous blends, including Johnnie Walker, White Horse, Haig and Bell’s. The majority of the existing single malt expressions from this distillery are produced by independent bottlers including Signatory Vintage and Gordon & MacPhail, who offer a variety of bottlings matured in sherry casks. An official bottling was introduced at the end of the 1990s: The Flora & Fauna Linkwood 12 Year Old, alongside a handful of other versions for the Rare Malts range.
