This Linkwood 10 Year Old is from The Single Malts of Scotland Reserve Casks Range. This particular expression is from a batch of seven barrels from Linkwood distillery that was used to create this single malt, distilled in 2009 and aged for more than 10 years. The result is a whisky that is fresh and peppery, reminiscent of an early autumn morning, with a fruity undertone contributing a mellow elegance. No added colour and no chill-filtration.

Fragrant green melon and freshly-cut hay are enveloped by the freshness of barley and apple-and-blackcurrant cordial. A slight scent of butterscotch sauce trails after.
Barley sugars and under-ripe pears contribute sweetness, while vegetal notes of nettle soup and celeriac appear behind.The appearance of apple on the palate is that of a red, crunchy Gala. Salt-and-pepper Kettle chips add a small kick.
Slightly syrupy,with a helping of fig yoghurt. Spicy and vegetal notes reappear, with chilli black-bean sauce and bay leaves resting on.
