Bottle No. 0875,
In 1995 United Distillers, predecessor of Diageo launched Rare Malts Selection. It followed The Classic Malts and Flora & Fauna series and originally included whiskies from closed distilleries, always bottled uncut and unchill-filtered.
As stocks diminished the company included rare vintages from the distilleries still in operation. Linkwood 1975 bottled in 2002 was the third expression from that distillery included in the range. The whisky was aged predominantly in ex-bourbon barrels with a little addition of ex-sherry casks. The value of Rare Malts bottlings has been continuously growing; the series was phased out in 2005 and chances for relaunch are more or less zero.
Nose: fruity and floral with subtle sherry notes, beeswax, vanilla, honey, rose petals, apples, plums, almonds, distant peat, hints of tobacco and hay.
Palate: nicely balanced, breakfast cereals, raisins, prunes, peaches, vanilla, toffee, rosehip marmalade, candied orange peel, mulling spice and oak.
Finish: long and pretty spicy with hints of fruity sweetness and faint smokiness.
