This is a 24 year Linkwood matured in an ex-bourbon hogshead and bottled at 50% ABV.
Nose: A real malt bomb full of loads of yeast and bread dough, a bit of charcoal and camphor oil appear with spiced pears.
Palate: Yeasty still here with the oak becoming bolder – overtones of tart apples and honeysuckle with a hint of lavender.
Finish: Quite dry and bitter as the oak takes over alongside traces of bread dough.
Value for the money: I can’t find any pricing data on this, but I’d be happy to buy a bottle anywhere up to $150 or so (guessing this is closer to $250).
