Linkwood Distillery is located in Speyside in the city of Elgin. It produces over 5.5 million liters of spirit per annum but almost entire output goes into Diageo’s blends, mainly Johnnie Walker, Haig’s, White Horse and Bell’s. Linkwood single malt has never been widely available and currently there is no official bottling (the last one was 12 years old, part of Flora & Fauna range). The 1989 expression presented here was bottled in 2001 by James MacArthur for The way of Spirits. It is one of the very few Linkwoods offered at cask strength (59.2% abv).

Palate: grassy and slightly oily, lemon peel, grapefruits, quince jelly, hay, notes of pepper and ginger, hints of cocoa and oaky bitterness.
Finish: pretty long, with notes of oak, hay and touch pepper.
