Description

The UDV/Diageo Flora & Fauna range, another creation from that wunderkind, Mr Mike Collings.  This series was to be a showcase of the “other distilleries” that UDV, now Diageo, that were not included in the Classic Six.

And once again, it came out of the early 1990’s, an era where single malts were still out of fashion.

I was first introduced the joys of Linkwood in 1980’s, where my old mate Cart used to always bang on about it.  So everytime we had a dram, guess what would come out?

Practice makes perfect, as they say.

Linkwood seems s t be going through a consumer renaissance at present, Summer 2022, as there are many  and varied independent bottlings going around.  So, why not use this old standard as your benchmark?

The house style has been described as, “slightly oily, becoming sweet”.

From Connosr, “The body is rather light and on the palate it becomes sweeter still than the nose already announced. Next to the apples and marzipan – which return – I also get some apricots and peach, while candied ginger gives it a bitter prickle. Subtle and summery. Nothing wrong with that. The finish is lightly peppered and mildly drying”.

The official notes read, “A whole garden of fruit and flower scents in a smooth, long, complex yet wholly integrated Speyside of utter distinction. This 12-year-old single malt whisky has a rich and oily mouthfeel with nutty, cereal notes and an aromatic and dry finish”.
