This 15 year old single malt is from the Linkwood Distillery in Speyside and bottled by Gordon & MacPhail. 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.

Tasting Notes

"Wonderfully fragrant with a proper sherry influence and intense fruity notes, such as freshly cut apples and apricots. Sweet honey and subtle floral aromas round everything out. The palate is sweet with caramel, brown sugar and cranberry, as well as a fair amount of almonds. A lovely Speyside malt with lots of character."
