Linkwood 12 Year Old Virgin Oak Barrel Whisky 55.5%
Originated on the edge of Elgin at Linkwood Distillery, Speyside. A hearty number matured in a bourbon barrel, before a month spent in a virgin oak cask. Golden in colour, goliath in character. Tangled aromas: sweet honey, toasted oak, dried fruit. Smooth and creamy to imbibe, with lightly spiced undertones.

Linkwood in the Speyside whisky region is located on the southern outskirts of the town of Elgin. The distillery dates back to 1821 when founded by Peter Brown. Fifty years later his son William knocked down the original distillery and reconstructed the buildings. After an expansion in 2013 to include two more stills the capacity is now 5.6 million litres of alcohol. Production has fluctuated between 3.6 million litres and its full capacity in the last few years.
Current owners Diageo use much of the whisky produced for blending and there is just one official core bottling the Flora & Fauna 12 year old. The new make spirit running from the six stills is crafted to be fruity, floral and grassy. Not only a hit with the blenders Linkwood is also popular with many different independent bottlers. These independent bottler releases showcase Linkwood single malt to be elegant with a great depth of character

Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Allspice, vanilla and herbal notes make for an aromatic nose, balanced by sweet cereal.
Palate: Nectarous caramel in each sip. Barley. Spicy sparks. A leisurely finish, with subtle oak and that opening sweetness echoed.
Finish: A lingering culmination. Oaky, exotic vanilla, nippy tannins - delicious details from its dual shifts in wood.
