We’re massive fans of Linkwood and Samaroli have really delivered on this unpeated expression, a marriage of 4 refill bourbon hogsheads numbered 311712, 311706, 311709 and 311711. The whisky was distilled in 2012 and bottled in 2022 at 45% ABV. Samaroli is known for bottling whiskies that drink beyond their stated ABV, such is the magic of their art, and this whisky is no different offering layers of complexity.
About Linkwood distillery
The Linkwood Distillery is located at Elgin, in the Speyside region of Scotland and is owned by the drinks giant Diageo. Linkwood has long been prized by blenders as the vast majority of production goes into Johnnie Walker and White Horse blends.
Diageo only rarely issue official releases and when they do, these expressions instantly sell out as they’re highly sort after by enthusiasts world-wide. The same principle applies to independent bottlings of Linkwood – Fantastic stuff!
Official tasting notes. …… A rich and dense spirit. Notes of aubergine, sweet pepper and mint; now lavender, an unknown number of flowers in full summer, powder and peach. All a prelude to an abundant satiating and fulfilling palate.
