Linkwood 28 Year Old Single Cask by Signatory (Cask 4538)
Tasting Note from Our Malt Master
Rarely seen with original bottling, this distillery is one of the more mysterious ones out there. Own and operated by Diageo's, it is often use for blending purpose by Jonnie Walker and White Horse. If you are nosing this dram and it remind you of some smoky blend you tried before, don't be surprise!
Nose: Bold, meaty and some bacon smoke. It definitely smell like some wood smoke bacon is trying it best to hide inside this dram. Meanwhile, you also get a smell from the cigar lounge with leather chair around you. At the back, you can also sense a hint of fruit.
Palate: A very robust and full-body dram. Spicy, leathery, meaty and definitely some peat smoke. Strong Medicainal note complementing by some leather and black paper bursting open in your mouth.
Finish: A very long finish. Residue smoke from burning fire, bamboo cane sweetness infused with some oak in the end.
