Expert ReviewsInsights from some of the best in the business
Floral, grassy and fragrant on the nutty nose, while the slightly oily palate becomes increasingly sweet, ending up at marzipan and almonds. The relatively lengthy finish is quite dry and citric.
Gavin D Smith, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.152
A classic example of a relatively light and fragrant whisky that has real complexity and a gorgeous feel. The perfect summertime dram.

Linkwood always evokes thoughts of sweetmeats. This one seems a particularly sweet interpetation.
Michael Jackson 2002, Whisky Magazine, Issue 22
Sweet and squidgy with over-ripe melon and soft pear on the nose, and a delightful palate of marzipan, vanilla, green apples and a touch of spice. The finish is balanced, pleasant and very enticing.
