Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 55.0%
Here's another no-brainer: A first fill sherry butt of Linkwood 1988, bottled as a 32-year-old by Gordon & MacPhail for their Connoisseurs Choice Cask Strength series, yielding 489 bottles at 55%.
Linkwood's quintessential Speyside spirit makes a perfect foil for either bourbon or sherry casks, and at a natural cask strength of 55% we'd expect this heavily-sherried 32-year-old to be a fabulous drop.
