Bought – Whisky Broker, 25th October 2013
80.67/100 – Whiskybase (average from 3 member votes)
My third and final bottle from the Whisky Broker (until my next purchase). It’s also my 3rd different age statement of Linkwood so perhaps I’m becoming a Linkwood collector?! I will be interested to try this 18yo and compare it against the 15yo and 13yo bottlings. My main aim is to see if I can detect an underlying taste that’s quintessentially Linkwood. Is this possible?
The details for this 18yo are:
This Speyside whisky, distilled on 5th June 1995 at Linkwood Distillery has been matured in an oak hogshead for over 18 years. The whisky has not been chill filtered, nor has any colouring been added. It has been bottled at natural cask strength.
This whisky has been lightly filtered to remove large particles of wood sediment from the cask, but may still contain small traces, which are visible only when bottle is left standing for a period of time. Details:

- Distilled 5th June 1995
- Bottled 19th June 2013
