Linkwood 37 Year Old 2016 Special Release description
Part of the Diageo Special Releases 2016 collection, this limited edition Speyside Single Malt was distilled in 1978 at Linkwood distillery. Rarely available as a single malt, this expression was matured in refill American oak hogsheads and refill European oak butts. Only 6,114 individually numbered bottles have been produced at natural cask strength.Fresh fruit notes of melon, grape, orange zest and apple pour over a fudge base, becoming creamier with marzipan, vanilla and a trace of liquorice. The palate is fruity and sweet with baked apple, becoming warming and tart with black tea, rum and raisin ice cream and vanilla. Notes of clove, ginger and salt emerge before the long peppery finish with aspects of spiced oak.
One of the few malt whiskies to be sold as a single malt in Victorian times, Linkwood distillery was built in 1825 and run for 70 years by father and son, Peter and William Brown. Traditionally distilled at lower alcohol levels to bring out its fragrant richness, Linkwood is highly regarded as a malt-maker's single malt.
