According to whiskyfun.com, Signatory deliver the goods - yet again - with a very special 30th Anniversary Linkwood. It's a relatively small release of 233 bottles, drawn from a single hogshead (No.9735). No surprise if you've never heard of Linkwood. It's another of Diageo's quiet distilleries that produces malt whiskies for blending, predominantly for the Bell's & Haig labels. We've tasted many indie expressions which are typically layered with chocolate and orchard fruits (think pear / apple). This one's all natural and weighs in at 50.3% Alc./Vol.Other reviews... Colour: gold. Nose: there’s a thread of shared DNA with the 1991 with these light fruit and buttery / grassy notes but this one is globally richer, fatter and more towards a classical mature Speysider in profile. More honey, more wax, bags of dried flowers like pot pourri, incense, herbal and fruit teas, crystallised citrus peels, quince and jasmine. Really a beautiful nose. Develops these wee notes of chamomile and bergamot with orange bitters and tiny hints of gingerbread. Superb! With water: sun lotion, hand cream, rapeseed oil, bay leaf, dried herb mix, wildflowers, brown bread, barley sugar and more very delicate waxy notes. Superbly elegant stuff. Mouth: wonderfully resinous and thick. Full of waxes, spiced honey, juniper, exotic teas, polished hardwoods, quince, heather ale, mead, elderflower, cider apple, nutmeg, aniseed and pollens. With water: really great with water. Everything just falls in line. Honeys, waxes, pollens, sunflower oil, cupboard spices, sultanas, dried herbs, darjeeling tea... wonderful. Reminiscent of some older vintages from the early 70s. Finish: good length, all on honeycomb, beeswax, eucalyptus, dried mint, sage and dried fruits. Comments: It looks as if Andrew must have dismounted his fork lift truck to select this one! Yet another terrific selection from Signatory’s 30th birthday series. I just love the way it harks back to an early 1970s style of Speysider with these lovely waxy and honey tones.
