Customer Rating
'Rounded yet delicate. Apples again, tingly spiciness. Fills and perfumes the mouth. Delicious…a classic example of a relatively light and fragrant whisky that has real complexity and a gorgeous feel. 8/10' Dave Broom, Whisky Magazine, Nov 2002

Linkwood 12 Year Old Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes from the producer

    Nose: Fresh soft-fruits with a hint of vanilla, then light cigar-box notes are perceptible, and a faint hint of expensive ladies' perfume.

    Palate: Sweet, overall. Viscous, but fresh and clean: a pleasant acidity helps to maintain this.

    Finish: Cedar notes emerge in the finish, which is long.

    Quite good, very floral with a slight acetone note on the end. Not heavy or rich at all.

    Fresh and fragrant, with grassy and floral notes and a a delicate body, traces of honey and soft maltiness. Truly enjoyable.

    Very good indeed. Not overly sherried like some Speysides can be. Very complex with beautiful wood. Obviously have access to some fantastic casks.

    This was the first scotch I ever tried in Scotland. Absolutely amazing stuff. I didn't know it was called Flora & Fauna until today, and how appropriate. My favourite Speyside. So fragrant too! I wouldn't say it's very similar to Glenmorangie Original. The latter is more fruity.

  • James Saxon 16 November 2009

    I was very relieved when I discovered that it wasn't comparable at all to the Glenmorangie Original. If it had been Rico and I would have disagreed on the overall conclusion: as it is, 'superb' is quite right!

    Really comparable to Glenmorangie 10YO (now "The Original") !!!Superb:)
