A batch of three ex-Bourbon hogsheads from the Linkwood distillery has been used to create this Single Malt, distilled in 2008 and aged for more than 13 years. This is a dram bursting with fruitiness and touches of citrus zest, making for a wonderfully bright and refreshing experience. Bottled exclusively for the USA.
Nose: We are initially greeted with slices of orchard fruits: Granny Smith apples and Williams pears are laid out on a stoneware plate. This is followed closely by beeswax and a slight dry white wine note. Fresh notes of just-cut grass develop into delicious tropical fruits: passionfruit and coconut.
Palate: More pears appear on the palate - this time, stewed and served as a dessert with more delicious passionfruit and a drizzle of caramel sauce. There is a squeeze of fresh lemon zest and a slight herbaceous note.
Finish: This is a beautifully balanced dram that is equal in both length and intensity. Incredibly moreish – tropical fruits linger on with delicious citrus.
