WHISKY TASTING NOTES
Nose: Sweet malt in a fruit basket of green grapes, pear and kiwi alongside green tea and just a hint of cinnamon.

Finish: Long and rich with the green grapes, kiwi, oak and cinnamon continuing to evolve long after the last sip.
Rumour has it that in the 1930s, Linkwood was so dedicated to maintaining it’s distinct flavours that 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 is worth such fanatical attention to detail. When you make whisky this good, you don’t want to change it.

About our Bottles
For us, one of the best aspects of a good single malt whisky is its ability to bring people together. So when we created our bottles we wanted to design something that felt like a decanter - meant to be passed around a group of friends, new and old, as they enjoy sharing a dram together.
Our bottles have a good weight to them, making them feel substantial and giving them the presence a good whisky deserves. We've offset the label, so that the whisky is centre stage; it shows the natural colour of the liquid clearly and proudly.
The label clearly and transparently shows you all the key information, including: the nature of the liquid (for example, single malt scotch) where it was distilled; how old it is; and how strong it is. All our liquids are natural colour and non chill filtered.
Our bottles come in two sizes: 700ml, which is our standard for our main releases; and for some of our expressions, 100ml minis.
