Linkwood 2009 10 Year Old Single Cask #313983 Rare Whisky 101 Description

A delightful sherry matured single cask, cask strength bottling from one of Speyside's hidden gem distilleries - Linkwood. This bottling has been personally selected for bottling by the Rare Whisky 101 team of David and Andy as a stunning example of Linkwood's liquid: flavours of dried fruit, spices, walnuts and almonds, citrus zest and oaky notes.

Distilled in October 2009, this expression has spent 10 years maturing in a single sherry cask before being bottled at 58.5% abv in December 2019 - the same month and year Princess Anne presented Doddie with the Helen Rollason award for “outstanding achievement in the face of adversity" at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year show. You can watch Doddie accepting the award here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdmrHQOC3Uc

Each winner of a bottle from Doddie's auction will receive two complimentary Glencairn glasses, branded with the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation logo (pictured on homepage)!

This bottle has been personally donated by David Robertson of Rare Whisky 101.

Doddie Weir OBE is one of rugby’s most recognizable personalities. He earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career.

Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge. In June 2017 the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease.

In November 2017 Doddie and his Trustees launched the registered charity My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. Its aims are simple: to raise funds to aid research into the causes of Motor Neuron Disease and investigate potential cures; to make grants to individuals suffering from MND, to enable them to live as fulfilled a life as possible.
