Linkwood - Batch 2 Bottling Note

It's the second batch of Linkwood bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company! That chap on the label is fixing Trigger's broom, which he got a medal for - he's been using the same broom for 20 years. I mean, it's had 17 new heads and 14 new handles, but he says it's still the same broom.

Right?

Of course, this a modernised way of presenting the Ship of Theseus paradox, as is a portion of Linkwood's history. The distillery was expanded in 1971, becoming two distilleries called Linkwood A and Linkwood B, where the new stills were. Linkwood A was eventually closed, leaving Linkwood B to be the only Linkwood.

Linkwood Batch 2 is a release of 135 bottles.

‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ bottles single malts, single grains, blended malts, blends and bourbons from a variety of renowned distilleries. These whiskies are adorned with cultish graphic-novel-style labels.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Ice cream, raspberry ripple perhaps. Almond, vanilla, peanut brittle, mint and blackcurrant.

Palate: Crème brûlée topped with toasted almonds. Honeyed mid palate with sultanas and late cinnamon.

Finish: Into crème caramel with a touch of clove.

Overall: Unctuous Speyside whisky.

Linkwood - Batch 2 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company) Reviews

Sweet and Rich

The Ice-cream tasting note above is spot on - the raspberry ripple notes are incredibly pronounced. It's clear that there's been some very significant cask influence at play here too - the Honey in the mid-palate bears testament to that.
