No. 1 - Vintage Cask Selection - Linkwood 2007
The Mossburn Vintage Casks range are a collection of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies each issuing from a strictly limited and select batch of casks. Each numbered release will only ever yield a finite number of bottles. While this means that we can never replicate the particular character of this Single Malt, it also offers an opportunity to sample what we believe to be an exceptional example of the whisky made by one of Scotland’s most distinguished distilleries.
This select single malt has been bottled without any colouring or chill filtration.
On the outskirts of the town of Elgin, Linkwood Distillery makes light,
delicate, fragrant, Speyside whisky, which has a fresh grassy fragrance when young.
Here the refilll barrels have limited the oak to a spicy backnote and it has developed a nose of white flowers with hints of lemongrass and white pepper.
Crystallised fruit and barley sugar on the palate with a lightly honeyed citrus note throughout.
