Linkwood / Wemyss Malts

Wemyss Malts Honeysuckle Bower Review

Wemyss Honeysuckle Bower Time for yet another fabulous Wemyss Malts dram this time with the wonderfully named Honeysuckle Bower a 1995 Vintage dram from the Linkwood Distillery.

Fruity, buttery, peppery and lots of lovely floral notes this is a lovely dram that i really enjoyed, it's a good example of a clean Linkwood as for me Linkwood can sometimes have a meaty note that i'm not hugely keen on but this dram is a perfect example of a very good Linkwood, Highly recommended.

If this sounds like your type of dram you can pick up a bottle from The Whisky Exchange

Thanks to Wemyss Malts for the official sample.
