Linkwood 8 Year Old (2011) - Provenance by Douglas Laing
Provenance marks the first series in Douglas Laing and Co's Exceptional Single Casks journey. For Provenance, DLC bottle extraordinary Single Cask Single Malts from a vast range of Scotland’s Whisky Distilleries. Each bottling is offered to you “as natural as it gets” – at 46% alcohol strength or higher, and without colouring or chill-filtration. Casks tend to be refill which helps to highlight each distilleries unique character.
Linkwood is firmly in the lighter style Speyside camp, producing new make spirit with high floral notes and freshly cut grass, apple and peach blossom. As the whisky matures and the angels steal their share the spirit intensifies and increases the texture and richness. Linkwood can be one of the truly balanced Malts.
This malt was distilled in 2011 and matured for 8 years in a single refill hogshead.
From the bottler: "Butterscotch sauce on vanilla ice cream, alongside warm porridge oats with honey. Lingers on and on...dried apple, buttery sponge cake and spiced oak." CSL
