Linkwood / Gordon & MacPhail

Linkwood 15 Year Old (Gordon and Macphail) Review

Linkwood 15 Year Old Gordon and macphail This dram was tasted as part of the 12 Drams of Xmas series

Day 4 was a new dram for me and was provided by Sandy Gould (@sjjgo).

This was the first time i'd tried a dram from this Speyside distillery and i was very impressed with what i had, the linkwood is a very nice dram indeed.

Somehow i thought this was quite familiar to me and so i went for the brilliant Bruichladdich Sherry Classic Fusion as i felt it had similar qualities, with the Sherried fruit and floral sweetness underlying, oh how wrong i was.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

sherry comes first, with a lightness fresh and dewy grass undertone, fruity and a little mentholy

Palate

i recognise this but can't put my finger on what it is, very familiar to me though, sherry and chocolate, almost like belgian chocolate covered sherried raisins.

Finish

warming but not too alcoholic.
