What's in a name? Linkwood 12 Year Old - Flora and Fauna whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Linkwood 12 Year Old - Flora and Fauna whiskey, rather than 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 truly amazing dram, used mainly for blending and you can see why. All the notes a good malt has is here in this one. Worth the money not readily available out side uk so buy if who have the chance.

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.
