Gordon & MacPhail Linkwood 15 Year Old Review

19th January 2017

Review of  by Murray Cohen.

Gordon & MacPhail Linkwood 15 Year Old ReviewGordon & MacPhail Distillery Labels Linkwood 15 Year Old was matured in Refill Sherry casks and bottled at 43% ABV.

In partnership with each respective distillery, all whiskies in Gordon & MacPhail's Distillery Labels range are uniquely labelled. In years gone by many of these unique designs were used ‘officially’ to bottle the whisky under license from the distillery. Today these trusted relationships with distillers enables Gordon & MacPhail to bottle whiskies at various ages, strengths and vintages - all with their unique distillery label.

You will find the G&M Linkwood 15 available for worldwide delivery from specialist online whisky shops such as Master of Malt.

Murray Cohen's Tasting Notes:

Colour:  Dark gold.

Nose:  Citronella is followed by Australian black licorice and hearty Brazil nuts. The sherry yields some appealing crème brulee elements but there is something lurking in ominous fashion in the depths like an octopus ready to spring forth.

Taste: Medium bodied. The nutty profile continues, somewhat drying. Ah, there it lies matey, sulphur notes coming into full consciousness on the taste buds.

Finish: Medium long. Coffee notes with flecks of dark chocolate.

Comment: This whisky entered the stage with a flurry of pleasantness but unfortunately a sulphur issue (experienced on my palate) has tied its hands.

SMW Score 79/100
