Sipping Shed Linkwood 11 Tasting Notes

Nose: Open up this fabulous bouquet with a dash of water. Fruity initially with peach and apricot with a touch of grapefruit keeping it fresh. Wine gums, a hint of raspberry and subtle mint add to the sweetshop aromas of hard candy.

Palate: Elegant with a delicious core of stone fruits and candy sweets. Some creamy highland toffee and a barley sugar sweetness, along with those sweetshop flavours, followed by gentle liquorice and a touch of spice and a hint of grapefruit for balance. It’s oily and slightly waxy giving a lovey feel in the mouth.

Finish: Satisfying and moreish with the fruit fading to spice.

About this whisky

A note from Dan: Cracking dram this but it does need a dash of water to get the best out of it. It’s fruity and floral with a lovely creamy/oily element. The cask has not interfered much but has done a great job of smoothing everything out and providing a touch of vanilla and spice. Importantly it leaves loads of space for the Linkwood character to shine, and it show why it is considered a tops class distillery by blenders. My wife Sarah’s personal favourite.
