Next up from the special Collector’s Room at Whisky Live Singapore 2016 was a whisky selected so that my sampling companion could try an older Linkwood from Gordon & MacPhail.
I was quite impressed with the Linkwood 25 year from Gordon & MacPhail and less so by a Linkwood 24 year from Signatory.
Alas, the La Maison du Whisky ‘Rarities Tasting Book Edition 2016’ did not feature this Linkwood and my separate scribbles went missing with all my subsequent travels.
Given the black and white label and the strength of only 40%, my guess is this may be from the 1980s. However that is pure speculation on my part.
So rather than tasting notes, details on the rare whisky imbibed, this is merely a testament to my chronicling follies. All that remains is a photograph and fuzzy recollection that this Linkwood did not disappoint.
Other whiskies sampled in the Collector’s Room included:
- Tormore 10 year 43% (1970s OB)
- Linkwood 25 year 40% (G&MP) – this post
- Bruichladdich 15 year (1965) 52% + Bruichladdich 10 year 58% (1970s OB)
- Karuizawa 12 year (1999) 58.9%
PS This whisky came compliments of my Whisky Live Singapore traveling companion – you know who you are and you know how much I appreciated experiencing these discoveries together!
