“Toffee and vanilla bomb! You won't say how good it is just by nosing it. Surprising and highly recommended.”
This was aged for 22 years in cask 5040 before bottling by Duncan Taylor for their Rare Auld range in October 2011. A cask strength release of 256 bottles.
An incredible whisky that is a bomb of vanilla and toffee. A must have for any whisky aficionado.
This dram has a fino-like color.
Nose (89): more than average. honey, floral, varnish, vanilla, apples, wood.
Palate (92): smooth, powerful, oily. honey, toffee, floral, citrus, spices, wood, vanilla.
Finish (92): longer than average. honey, floral, vanilla.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Linkwood 22 Year Old 1989 - Rare Auld (Duncan Taylor) with 91 points over 100.
