Customer Rating
We like a good Linkwood at TWE, and on the trip to Signatory where we selected this exclusive bottling we were very pleased to find this example. Distilled in 1985 and bottled after 28 years in an American-oak hogshead, this is robust and spicy.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Rich, meaty and spicy, with classy oak, cinnamon, cigar box and leather. Like wandering through a second-hand bookshop. A little water brings out tart, juicy fruit: gooseberry, greengage and sour plum.

    Palate: Still full of life, despite approaching its 30th birthday, this is a robust, full-bodied dram, loaded with black pepper, dry tannins from the oak, leather and sweet spice. Quite a handful.

    Finish: The leather and spicy oak last a very long time. A whisky to take your time over.

    Sumptuous! great spices, well done BBQ smoked meat and cinnamon hints with a pepper kick in the aftertaste. Delicious and worth the money.
