The Single Cask Linkwood 1995 18 Years Old

The Single Cask

Founded in 1821 and currently owned and operated by Diageo, Linkwood distillery is a critical component whisky within several blended Scotch whisky brands, including Johnnie Walker. It is one of four signature malts within Johnnie Walker Green Label blended malt and is well-loved by blenders across Scotland for its refreshing and fruity character.

This particular expression has been drawn from a single cask after 18 years of maturation and bottled at 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.
