This review focuses on another bottling from the early days of The Single Cask and it showcases a Linkwood which was distilled in 1995, matured in a single bourbon hogshead for 18 years before being bottled at a cask strength abv of 51.2% back in 2013.
So, let's dive right into the review!
The Single Cask Linkwood 1995 18 Years Old (51.2% abv)
Nose: Immediately creamy soft and pillowy gentle. We are met with wet leaves after a shower, sweet cereals and lots of poached fruits. Almost feminine with tender, blossoming aromatics. Palate: Firmer and bigger on the tongue, but again lots of sweet woodiness and with it, melting sugar and toffee crisp. Some herbaceous notes follow with touches of fennel and still lots of fruit. Finish: After the softness has receded, the woody and malty notes remain.
This whisky is sold out worldwide.
