Linkwood distillery has long been famed for the quality of its matured spirit, especially that which is left undisturbed for decades. Linkwood distillery itself is old as the hills, and produces a remarkably elegant spirit in large, swan necked stills. This single Sherry hogshead produced only 190 bottles after almost 50 years of gentle aging. This Linkwood remains remarkably subtle and graceful, with a nose of vanilla, sweet treacle and Medjool dates. On the palate find stewed apple, delicate citrus, sultanas, and toasted almonds, leading in to a long and full finish of delicate spice.
