LINKWOOD BACKGROUND 

Rumour has it that in the 1930s, Linkwood was so dedicated to maintaining it’s distinct flavours that ever even spiders’ webs were not removed from the warehouses for fear of changing the whisky’s character. We love that kind of attention to detail and dedication to producing consistently good whisky. And this scotch shows exactly why that character us worth such fanatical attention to detail. When you make whisky this good, you don’t want to change it.
