Linkwood 1987 (Perfect Dram)

A Linkwood 1987, bottled by The Whisky Agency in October 2014. Reviews are rare, so it’s still available in stores.



Linkwood 1987 - Perfect DramLinkwood 27 yo 1987 (47,3%, The Whisky Agency ‘Perfect Dram’ 2014, rum finish, 179 btl.)

Nose: holding the middle between mildly fruity notes (overripe apple and banana) and grassy notes (hay, wet leaves). Dried herbs and a slight mustiness. Eucalyptus tea. Light pepper.

Mouth: again mildly fruity (melon, apple) with herbal honey and different kinds of tea. A bit of salted caramel. Eucalyptus again, a little ginger as well, bringing a gentle bitterness.

Finish: long, even more herbal, with aniseed and grapefruit zest.

Good Linkwood, but not great. Totally outclassed by the Linkwood 1984 that was presented by the same bottler simultaneously. Around € 175.

Score: 86/100
