Adelphi Linkwood 2008, Scotland, United Kingdom 70cl
13 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Whisky, 70cl. No. of bottles: 586. Scotland, United Kingdom. 53.8% ABV.
Fully matured in a first-fill Oloroso butt, this is mahogany in colour and has good beading. The nose is a heady combination of brazil nuts, brioche bread, cocoa powder, Godiva chocolate, icing-coated wedding cake, and sugared apples. The luscious palate opens with tarte tatin, dates and pink grapefruit before moving on to lavender and violet creams. A floral, medium finish completes this dram in style.
This bottling of Linkwood single malt, after distillation over in Speyside, was whacked straight into first-fill Oloroso Sherry butt. After 13 years of maturing, the liquid was bottled by Adelphi.
