LINKWOOD 2013 Very Cloudy S.V 40%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 56846B
When first you try this version bottled by Signatory Vintage, it will be very clear to you why Linkwood is one of the best-loved Speyside distilleries: the fineness of its grain, the purety of its fruit, the elegance of its spices and the silkiness of its vanilla and chocolate notes are all utterly delightful experiences. Reduced to 40% without either chill filtering or colouring, the single malts in the Very Cloudy range have a rich, intensely aromatic character and, sometimes, a slightly cloudy appearance. They can be enjoyed at room temperature or lightly chilled to accentuate the oily texture.

- 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.
Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.
