A beautiful old bottling from Gordon & MacPhail and Linkwood. This dram forms part of Gordon & MacPhail’s wonderfully retro Diistillery Labels series.
Linkwood is a distillery well-beloved by connoisseurs, but does particularly well at great ages, such as with this dram.
25 years of maturation in refill sherry casks has granted this dram an extraordinary complexity and depth, with notes of toasty malt, rosemary, sherry, cream, vanilla, cracked pepper, liquorice, lemon zest, spice and the faintest hint of elegant peat smoke.
Bottled at 43% ABV, this is a crisp and flavourful whisky.
