Linkwood 2012 Sherry Butt Picoty S.V. 46%
This single malt Linkwood 2012 Sherry Butt Picoty S.V. has been specially selected for us with the House of Whisky. Indeed The mythical distiilerie Linkwood has been able to impose its style through the ages with an approach on the fruit. This single cask (cask #6) from the Picoty group was distilled in 2012 and it has the particularity of having a sherry maturation giving it a certain complexity. The bottling was made at Signatory Vintage, famous for its bottling in cask crude and without cold filtering, allowing the amateur to taste his whisky in the most natural state possible.
Nose: Charming and greedy. It offers an avalanche of white dried fruits associated with more floral aromas including acacia honey which brings roundness.
Palate: The power of the fruit gives way to a more floral aspect full of finesse counterbalancing this nose. Also vegetal notes bring structure to this mouth that will draw slightly more in the register of spice and wood.
Finish: Long and intense, it confirms the vegetal side with a slight aroma of liquorice.
