Single Cask Nation, Linkwood 2009, 12-Year Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Scotland) 750ML
Producer Notes: This cask bottling, distilled April 2009, spent 12 years maturing in a Refill Oloroso Sherry Butt. It was bottled at cask strength in May 2021 at 55.5% ABV. Cask # 4815162342 yielded 666 bottles.

NOSE: There’s no holding back here: bright, fresh, floral, and fragrant notes jump over the edges of the glass to greet you! Look for freshly baked bread, warm oatmeal, poached pears in ginger syrup, and cedar cigar boxes.
PALATE: Hugely oily texture with ginger spice candies, more poached pears, apple and walnut salad tossed with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar with a massive crack of black pepper over the top, and round, warm oak towards the end.
FINISH: Good length with lingering spiciness and oiliness that becomes a little waxy down the middle of the tongue.
