Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky 
Bottled by: The Sipping Shed 70cl / 59%

Indie bottlers The Sipping Shed have bottled a small parcel of casks from Diageo distilleries, with this 11-year-old Linkwood coming to us along with similarly promising youngish Blair Athol and Caol Ila casks.

This Linkwood has been bottled at its natural cask strength of 59% straight out of a bourbon hogshead Cask 804348 and it looks like a great punt for Speyside fans at this great price, promising sweet fruity flavours and a hint of spice. You'll probably want to add a drop of water to open it up.

Tasting Notes

Official Tasting Notes

Nose: Open up this fabulous bouquet with a dash of water. Fruity initially with peach and apricot with a touch of grapefruit keeping it fresh. Wine gums, a hint of raspberry, and subtle mint add to the sweetshop aromas of hard candy.

Elegant with a delicious core of stone fruits and candy sweets. Some creamy highland toffee and a barley sugar sweetness, along with those sweetshop flavours, followed by gentle liquorice and a touch of spice and a hint of grapefruit for balance. It’s oily and slightly waxy giving a lovey feel in the mouth.

Satisfying and moreish with the fruit fading to spice.
