The flavours are very dense and compact here which makes it hard to single out specific ones. It is a lovely whisky, but it needs time to open up. – Rating: 87/100

A very fine dram where the sherry is well present but does not overwhelm the spirit. – Rating: 85/100

A quite unusual but also very pleasant whisky and most likely without nicotine. – Rating: 87/100

Very strong wood and light sulphur make this not a dram for anyone. Was this a finish to save a bad cask? – Rating: 78/100

Despite the very rich flavours, this malt has a delightful lightness often found in Linkwood. Be careful with water. Sublime. – Rating: 89/100

Linkwood 1984/2012 Adelphi

Quite a nice dram with an intriguing nose and a well-balanced palate. The pricing is adequate for its age but there are better deals out there. – Rating: 84/100

A thoroughly enjoyable dram, rather light-bodied. It has a nice freshness but you can still feel it’s not a youngster. – Rating: 84/100

This is a very fine sherried malt with a gorgeous nose. The palate is just a touch too much on the sweet side to be truly outstanding. – Rating: 86/100

Linkwood 1975/2001 Rare Malts

There seems to something missing here. Timid nose with and without water, rather incomplex palate for a 26yo. But perhaps it was just the sample I received. – Score: 73/100

Quite a complex dram, at first I was’nt too impressed. But I like it more and more. – Score: 83/100

I usually like Linkwood, but this one is a true underachiever. Terribly sweet and not much else. – Score: 60/100
