A 1978-vintage Linkwood bottled for the Diageo Special Releases 2016 at 37 years of age. An elegant and well-matured dram, this is shot through with sweet, creamy and fruity flavours, all sat on a backbone of rich but savoury chocolate.Tasting Notes (1)
- Dark Chocolate
- Wet wool (wet dog)
Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (TWE)
Polished apples, waxed jackets and honeysuckle sweetness. Hints of damp wool slowly develop, balanced by soft sweetness.
Sweet and creamy – strawberries and cream, and rhubarb and custard sweets – with a background of crumbled brownie (chocolate soil, anyone?) and musky green leaves. Water brings out more candy notes and a touch of Turkish Delight.
More rhubarb and custards, icing and green leaves. The sweetness slowly fades, leaving the leaves.
Exactly my style of whisky and easily fulfilling my expectations. Creamily textured with controlled sweetness and a balance of sweetshop flavours and leafy, forest notes. My favourite of the 2016 line-up.
