Notify me when this product is available:

Cask:  Finished in 1st Fill Amontillado Sherry Hogshead 

Just 263 bottles of this rare whisky exist, having been distilled in 2007 and finished for 13 months in unusual Amontillado Sherry casks.  This unique Linkwood has rich butterscotch, marmalade, aniseed, apricot and milk chocolate aromas.  The palate is rich and beautifully oily, with baking spices and a marzipan style nuttiness from the Amontillado.

About the distillery

Linkwood's peachy, light, floral and pretty style of whisky has made it a consistently attractive Single Malt for use in blends over its history. Linkwood was established in 1821 on the outskirts of Elgin but only started production in 1824. It was encorporated into the dominant Distillers Company Limited in the 1930s, during who's tenure a new distillery was constructed on the same site in 1972. The original distillery was withdrawn from production in 1985, and instead was used by new owners Diageo as an experimental site to research the more detailed science of distilling.
