Named after a local burn, Linkwood is an active distillery located in Elgin, within the Speyside region. The distillery was officially founded in 1825, but its roots date back to 1821 when it would have been an illicit distillery.
Linkwood is synonymous with well-balanced distillates of medium body and sweetness encompassing fruity, floral, honey, malt and spice notes, making it a great example of a Speyside whisky.
This cask release is a Bourbon Hogshead #87. Distilled on the 13th of July 2006 and finished in a Pedro Ximenez Sherry Octave for 3 months. This was the second batch from cask #87 to be finished in the same octave.
The octave yielded only 63 bottles because we took approximately 50 litres from the original Bourbon cask #87 to be finished in an intense Pedro Ximenez sherry octave.
Our Pedro Ximenez octaves are sourced from a family-owned bodgega near Porto in Portugal. Pedro Ximenez is a very intense sweet, dark sherry. Octaves are small 50 litre oak casks that provide great levels of oak to spirit contact.
On the palate, expect hints of milk chocolate, butterscotch and banana.
Thinking about how to gift Whisky, why not try out gift sets?
Our gift sets include the bottle of your choice presented in our oak box with a set of Glencairn tasting glasses.
Glencairn glasses are an excellent accompaniment to any Whisky tasting because their bell shape allows for complex Whisky aromas to be trapped in the glass making them ideal for nosing and sipping. They also have the added benefit that if the glass tips over all of the spirit doesn't splash out!
