Linkwood 12 year old Flam Wine Cask Finish DS Tayman Scotch Whisky
DS Tayman Single Malt Scotch Whisky is the product of many years’ knowledge, thought and development. With nearly two decades in the alcohol industry, Director of Malts Danny Saltman was keen to bring something new to the market. Driven to develop an exceptional collection of whiskies, Danny has travelled the length of Scotland to match choice Scotch Whiskies with hand-chosen casks.
As DS Tayman only bottles malt whisky aged in single casks, you can be assured that each limited-edition expression has a unique taste profile that cannot be recreated.
Linkwood distillery, owned by Diageo and found in the Speyside region of Scotland is firmly in the 'lighter' style of malt. After decent maturation though this lightness is met with fantastic mouthfeel and texture, that makes Linkwood a distillery well sought after by malt whisky fans.
This single malt whisky was distilled in March 2008 at the Linkwood distillery before being placed in a single refill ex-Bourbon Barrel and left to mature for much of it's 12 year maturation period, with a Finish in a single ex-red wine cask from the Boutique Israel Flam Winery. In July 2020 it was bottled at 46% ABV as part of the 2nd Edition releases from DS Tayman. Only 384 bottles were produced.
Nose: "Baked apple, buttered crumpets,, candied orange peel with a backdrop of toasted oak
Palate: "A soft gentle sweetness with creamy vanilla, sherbet and hints of sweet red berries"
Finish: "A pinch of black pepper on strawberries, a silky mouth feel and a long spicy finish"
