2011 Carn Mor Strictly Limited Linkwood 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Tasted from a 20ml sample, this typically well-weighted Linkwood opens with notes of poached orchard fruits, vanilla and bubblegum, augmented by an oiliness that pervades the middle and extends into a crisp finish. Great texture. For a comparison style, think Glen Grant in middle age. Distilled in 2011 and bottled in 2022, 1255 bottles were produced. 47.5% Alc./Vol. Non chill-filtered.
Notes from the importer... A gentle nose of vanilla custard over lemon citrus and fresh white peaches. Intensely fruity on the palate, with more peaches, met with nectarines and pink lady apples. Plenty of vanilla and a gentle kitchen spice round out this dangerously drinkable whisky! A medium long finish.
