LINKWOOD

Distillery
  • Region: Speyside
  • Address: Elgin, Moray
  • Founded: 1821
Product Description

Hugo captured the folk of Clanyard Bay brilliantly with this illustration.

Despite its ghoulish look, Linkwood offers a unique insight into one of Speyside’s best-kept secrets.

Delicately floral single malt with notes of green apple and white chocolate define Linkwood.

Subtle but highly complex single malts that interact brilliantly with American Oak.

In time, as Linkwood ages, it develops a warmer spicy quality, and we have been able to secure casks to highlight each of these aspects through our releases. 

Did You Know?

At one time the distillery grew its own barley and had cows which ate the distillery’s own spent - and alcohol free - grain.

 

Linkwood has been released as three different 26 year olds, each spending 14 years in ex rum, red wine or port casks respectively.

 

The whisky features prominently in Johnnie Walker blends, but has also been bottled as a single malt in Diageo’s Flora and Fauna range.

Distillery Tasting Notes

Nose

Green apple, bold, buttered burnt toast. Grassy and nutty with soft some spicy notes.

Palate

Sweet and soft initially, with green fruits and acidity, lemon, crisp green apple, fresh mint, and green tea. With water, a soft white chocolate and honey are released. 

Finish

White chocolate, lavender and fresh green apple skin deliver a clean and refined finish.
