Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled By: Signatory Vintage 70cl / 50.3%
Signatory Vintage has to be up there with the best of the independent bottlers in the industry and to celebrate the 30th Anniversary they have released a collection of exceptional bottlings from many sought after distilleries.
This Linkwood was distilled in 1990 and aged for 27 years in hogshead #9735 before being bottled in 2018 with a yield of just 233 bottles.
This bottling repeatedly flirts with sherry - firstly with exotic fruity aromas and heady floral tones and then tertiary aromas like forest floor and black fruits.
The bottle is presented in a black lacker box with 2 Signatory Vintage branded Glencairn glasses.
Official Tasting Notes
Colour: Burnished gold with glints of copper.
Nose: A complex yet fresh and malty nose. Allowed to breathe and you can start to pick out exotic fruits like mango and spicy black pepper.
Palate: A malty palate initially that gives way to dried fruit and spices becoming more floral and earthy. The finish is woody and silky with apricot and plum notes.
