Linkwood Distillery was founded in 1821 by Peter Brown when whisky distillation was still illegal in Scotland. Production began in 1825, after Glenlivet, which claims to be the first legal distillery, making Linkwood arguably the country's second legal distillery. Most of the whisky produced at the Linkwood distillery is used in blends, most notably Johnnie Walker and White Horse - but Gordon & MacPhail have had a long standing agreement with Linkwood to independently bottle and market as a Single Malt.
This Linkwood 25 year old from Gordon & Macphail is part of their ‘Distillery Labels’ range, celebrating G&M's relationships with a number of different Scottish distilleries. Matured in Gordon & Macphail’s own sherry and bourbon casks , this whisky takes on both spicy and sweet sherry flavours. On the bottle is the original historical label used by the distillery.
Nose: A burst of freshness with a defined hint of well toasted malt. Stone fruits emerge and a subtle sherry influence lingers in the background
Palate: Sweet and creamy with some delicate hints of Vanilla. Mid-palate dark chocolate notes begin to appear along with white peppery warmth.
Finish: The finish is medium-long, with warm spices and toasted oak.
