Speyside Single Malt, 58.1%, 70cl — Small Batch of 2 casks, Sherry Butt Recask
Limited edition of 1398 bottles — LMDW Exclusive

Founded in 1821 by Peter Brown, Linkwood was completely rebuilt in 1872. Almost a century later, in 1971, a new adjoining distillery, named Linkwood N, was created. The two distilleries worked together until 1996, when the original site closed definitively. With incredible finesse, this version wonderfully embodies the minimalist style of this single malt, which is so well renowned amongst enthusiasts throughout the world. Remarkably well-balanced, it is with rare precision that it invites the taster to discover the full breadth and complexity of a palette of flavours and aromas that overflows with lyricism.COLOUR
Orangey copper

NOSE
Refined, smooth. The floral (lavender, violet) and mineral (zan liquorice sweets, basalt) first nose is incredibly complex. A very beautiful fruity rancio (candied orange, mango, apricot) brings lots of smoothness and depth to an aromatic palette also marked by notes of salted butter caramel and toffee. Allowed to breathe, it becomes increasingly heady, until rose poivrée even rises to the surface of the glass.

PALATE
Full-bodied, rich. More powerful than the nose would have you believe, the attack is captivating. Remarkably vegetal and malty, with impressive length. Evoking harvest time (straw, lucerne), the mid-palate reveals a stunning exoticism (guava, mango) and heady character (purple lilac, freesia). Rose petals are then placed delicately on the palate, accentuating the oriental character of the flavour palette.

FINISH
Long, full. With a particularly refined texture, the start of the finish is then characterized by flavours of liquorice stick, salted butter caramel, caraway and smoking Havana cigar. It is also very spicy (clove, nutmeg). Gradually, a few grains of falling dust add a poetic dimension to the very end of the palate. The empyreumatic empty glass wavers between beeswax, apricot stone and the patina of antique furniture.

ARTIST COLLECTIVE
Like the artist collectives that create a hive of exchange, inspiration and design, our Artist Collective range is dedicated to creativity and diversity.

It features all regions and all styles of Scottish single malt, as well as all types of maturation and bottling strengths.

To illustrate the labels of this fourth Artist Collective collection, a design competition on the theme of trompe l’oeil was launched amongst students of French design schools.

The six selected artworkds echo the richness of the single malts of the range and the universe to which they are linked.
