Linkwood 1987 / 16 Year Old

Rating: Not Rated Yet Manufacturer: Samaroli Email
  • Description
  • Reviews
This malt was distilled in 1987 at Linkwood distillery, which rarely releases official bottlings as most of the whisky produced goes into blends like Johnnie Walker or White Horse. Italian independent bottler Samaroli decided to have this malt finished in a Port Pipe, before bottling it at combined age of 16 in 2003. 
 
Producer’s Tasting Notes: 
Smooth, round and delicate bouquet with sweet notes of flowers, nuts and honey. Phenolic peat in the background. More definite aromas emerge later in wide expansion giving strength and character. Speyside typical flavors like honey, leather, pear drops, vanilla and custard on the end. Well balanced and winding structure with a long lingering taste. A very pleasant, old fashioned dram.
