Linkwood 1973 (Gordon and MacPhail) Single Malt Whisky
70cl, 43% abv
Linkwood 1973 (Gordon and MacPhail) Single Malt Whisky was matured in refill sherry casks and distilled in 1973. Bottled by Gordon and MacPhail, this is a splendid vintage of Linkwood. There are few official bottlings of Linkwood released from the distillery and this one is very good indeed. A citrus focussed Linkwood with an attractive perfumed smoky aroma.
Nose: The nose is ripe with tropical fruit especially star fruit and mango followed by a perfumed smokiness.
Palate: The palate is sweet with refreshing lemon and lime notes and a hint of nutmeg.
Finish: The finish is citrus fresh with notes of stewing apples entwined within.
