I'm turning into a real sucker for Linkwood - the dried fruit and dash of peat. Reminds me of days as a kid walking through fields of newly cut hay (nice tasting note eh?)
Linkwood 11yo 1984/1996 (43%, Signatory, butt #5458) Colour: straw. Nose: rich and nutty, with some discrete, but nice sherry. Caramel, creme brûlée, burnt cake. Lots of cooked fruits, apple, apricot, mirabelle, quince. This nose gets nicer and nicer. Nice hints of spices, aniseed, Chinese anise. Great balance and elegance. Some peppermint. Mouth: nice attack, quite sherried, but much less impressive than the nose. Funny notes of herbs from Provence (thyme, rosemary). Fresh mint. Caramel, dried fruits, breadcrumb. It’s good, for sure! Medium finish, just a little offbeat. 84 points.
Seems interesting enough.
