This distillery by the banks of the river Lossie is every bit the idyll of a country distillery, with its woodlands and resident population of Swans. Legend has it that longtime manager Roderick Mackenzie thought the environment so important to the taste of Linkwood, he forbade the removal of spiders’ webs from the rafters in case the character were to change. Great care is still taken to maintain its high standards, though the cobwebs have been removed.
Expert ReviewsInsights from some of the best in the business
Floral, grassy and fragrant on the nutty nose, while the slightly oily palate becomes increasingly sweet, ending up at marzipan and almonds. The relatively lengthy finish is quite dry and citric.
Gavin D Smith, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.152
A classic example of a relatively light and fragrant whisky that has real complexity and a gorgeous feel. The perfect summertime dram.
Dave Broom 2002, Whisky Magazine, Issue 27
Linkwood always evokes thoughts of sweetmeats. This one seems a particularly sweet interpetation.
Michael Jackson 2002, Whisky Magazine, Issue 22
Sweet and squidgy with over-ripe melon and soft pear on the nose, and a delightful palate of marzipan, vanilla, green apples and a touch of spice. The finish is balanced, pleasant and very enticing.
Dominic Roskrow, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.152
Sublime malt: one of the most glittering gems in the Diageo crown. 94.5 points
