Gordon & MacPhail Distillery Labels Series Linkwood 25. Image courtesy Gordon & MacPhail.Linkwood is one of those classic Speyside distilleries that deserves more credit for its whisky, which usually winds up in blends. The nose on this Gordon & MacPhail bottling has notes of toffee, figs, honey, plums, and raisins…well-rounded and complex. The taste is full of Christmas cake, along with toffee, gentle spices, and a touch of molasses cookies. The finish is long with lingering hints of dark fruits and a subtle hint of dry spices. Excellent! (March, 2020)
