This single cask was distilled at Linkwood Distillery in 2009 and aged for 11 years in a refill hogshead. Bottled by Berry Bros. & Rudd for their Summer Release.
Linkwood is generally archetypal of the lighter side of Speyside, and this refill hogshead is no exception. The nose is incredibly gentle, offering aromas of peach, banana and melon with a little toasted oak from the cask. This subtle theme continues on the palate, with notes of fresh fruit salad and a slight citrusy tanginess creating a wonderful interplay with the beautifully delicate texture. A whiff of smoke is glimpsed on the finish before waves of baking spice and oak roll in.
