Linkwood Distillery which is situated on the River Lossie, South of Elgin, was founded in 1821. In 1936 the distillery was taken over by the Distillers Company and like many distilleries, it was closed during World War 11. When it re-opened the new manager, Roderick Mackenzie, insured that no-changes were made to the distillation process. Under his supervision, even spiders webs were preserved for fear that the whisky would lose some of its character if they were removed.
A hint of sweetness, with perhaps tangerine and caraway seed on the nose developing into a long, satisfying dry finish. The palate has fudge and honey with a touch of green apples.
