Linkwood 14 yo (2000/2014), SMWS 39.105, 58,1 %

Review #180
This whisky is called “Pirates puddings on the deck” and comes from a refill ex-bourbon hogshead. Only 290 botlles were made. The smell is full of sweet and fruity notes, caramel and fresh apples.

The taste is a little harsh at first but when the finish comes a lot of apples and pears appears and becomes a lot smoother.

With some water the first impression of the taste settles down a bit and the fruity notes comes a bit forward and the whisky scores some extra points. I will rate this 87/100 (21/22/22/22).
