OTHER - Nose - Sylvestry. Pine needles. Wet cider cellar walls. Cooked apples in oven with cinnamon and honey. A touch of beeswax.
Palate - Very smooth if not too soft. Sweet oakiness giving way to a drier edge with some astringency at mid-palate. Ripe hazelnuts.
Finish - A bit grippy. Oak never gives up.
Comment - That malt could easily be thrown in a calvados blind tasting, with aged oaky individuals.

The Producer

Linkwood Distillery, Speyside

Linkwood Distillery, Speyside

Peter Brown established the Linkwood distillery in 1821 and the first distillation took place in 1824. After his death, his son, William Brown cemented the reputation of the distillery over the next 30 years.

In 1936 the distillery was taken over by the Distillers Company (now Diageo) and like many other distilleries, it was closed during World War II. After the war, Roderick Mackenzie reopened the distillery and stayed in helm for the next 18 years.

Mackenzie was a passionate believer in the qualities that the distillery could draw from its tradition and heritage, so he resisted any change at Linkwood, and even forbade the removal of even spider webs. Nevertheless in 1971 Linkwood tripled its production capacity. Despite these alterations, the Linkwood distillery has always kept its traditional character.

The distillery was closed from 1985 up to 1990 when the old side reopened for production a few months per year. Only 1 or 2% of the production is marketed as single malt, the remaining being used in the blends of the Diageo group such as Haig, Bells and Dimple and Jonnie Walker.
