A bottling of Linkwood as part of Gordon & Macphail's Private Collection series, with an interesting red wine cask finish. The casks originally matured Cote Rotie, a red wine from the north of the Rhone region, and the finishing complimented an initial maturation in bourbon casks.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Martine Nouet for Whisky Magazine

    Nose
    A strong sour note. Cider apples, cider cellar. Antique shop. Opening on sweeter notes. Caramel, barley sugar. A touch of burnt wood.

    Palate
    Dry and crisp. The oak grips the palate. Bittersweet apples, chestnut purée.

    Finish
    Dry but the bitterness has gone. A touch of sandalwood in the back.

    Comments
    An interesting profile. As the wood takes the lead but gives in to the fruit in the end. Not for the sweet tooth.

    8/10

  • Producer's Notes

    After finishing in the finest Cote Rotie casks for 30 months, this whisky has developed rich, summer fruit aromas with vanilla and roaster malt notes.
