Another great release from our stash of Linkwood. Sherry Hogshead maturation, and you can really tell. Dark in colour, with a luscious rich, fruity palate, this is a real treat for sherry fans. See our tasting notes for more details.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes from Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)

    Colour: pale amber.

    Nose: more spirity of course and a little silent at first nosing but starting to get closer to the ‘lower strength versions’. Same notes of raisins, toffee, orange marmalade, honey… A little more sulphur in this one.

    With water: more on all things orangey, including cake and orange blossom water.

    Mouth (neat): even closer to the two lightweights but with more of everything this time, especially spices and maple syrup.

    Easily drinkable without water but let’s try it with a few drops… It gets even better, really tasting like everything in a candy shop plus quite some cloves and a little cinnamon. Perfect sherry and whisky association, only for pleasure. Perfect balance and compactness. 89 points.

  • Tasting Notes by TF

    Nose:  Sherry very evident on the nose.  Raisins, fruitcake, toffee and the like.  Some rich gingerbread aromas, trace of sulphur and polish.  Biscuity.

    Palate:  Syrup, treacle, spice, dried ginger.  More of the fruitcake notes from the nose.  Some rich citrus notes, particularly sweet orange.  The spice gradually assumes dominance over the rest.

    Finish:  Warm and long with the spice persisting and the sherry notes slowly fading around it.

    Comment:  Another real treat for fans of sherried Speyside.
