Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 49.4%

Well, the highly anticipated 60 year old Linkwood by G&M for their ongoing Private Collection series just landed at Whisky-Online. Cask number 20, a first fill sherry hogshead was laid down on the 3rd January 1956 by John Urquhart and is said to be the last remaining 1950s cask from the Linkwood distillery. This cask has been selected to represent the second release in what will be a four part series of epic whiskies.

Tasting Notes

Tasting note by Stephen Rankin
NOSE
Rich, warm, and sweet. It starts off very gently with soft mature alcohols being very obliging as you inhale them. Baked apple with raisins, sultanas, a drizzle of crème anglaise, and a side of toffee sauce develop into a heady fruitcake. With time, notes of a dark chocolate and orange tart come to the fore. And then, a touch of honey, a wild dark honey, that ripens into maple syrup. Further patience is rewarded with aromas of dates and figs.
PALATE
Initially charming and gently coating the mouth. The longer you hold it, however, the warmer it becomes. It is full-bodied, as expected from Linkwood, with good acidity that makes you salivate for more. It is sweet: the dark wild honey is now drizzled over warm apple strudel. Flavours of fruitcake entertain the taste buds. The mid-palate is equally gentle, but now there is more – the dark chocolate orange tart is back on the menu!
FINISH
Long. Dried fruit, oak with a touch of candle wax, followed by soot and the scent of an extinguished candle.
WITH WATER
Two careful drops bring the oak to the forefront both in the nose and on the palate; the sweetness is heightened into a treacle toffee. The palate remains rich and coating; the oak mixes with nutty tannins and toasted malt – a delightful balance. Dark chocolate and toffee notes are now accompanied by hints of leather.
