Insider knowledge: Linkwood 12 Year Old - Flora and Fauna whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Linkwood 12 Year Old - Flora and Fauna whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Quite green, thick. Herbal, nutty, oily. Almond.
Palate: Medium, oily. Honey, pine oil. Malt, almond.
Finish: Quite long, dry, touch of anise.
A very nice dram indeed , get yourself a bottle its well worth the price.

Nose: Pine nuts, barley sugars (the sweets), mint jelly (like you get with lamb), oak leafs green from the tree
Taste: Crystal clean yummy barley, walnuts, apple and pear cores, almonds.
Finish: Dry white wine, grape skins, apricot
A stunner, quite dear for a 12 year old but worth every penny if your a Speyside fan. Wonderful stuff.
