After a busy couple of days, finally getting some time to sit and sip a nice dram. Just opened this Master of Malt, 11 Year Old Linkwood. Release # 96. Distilled: April 2008 Disgorged: August 2019 Cask Type: Refill Cask size: Hogshead Bottle # 172 of 358 Non-chill filtered ABV: 46.7% Initial thoughts are that this is a very light coloured liquid, similar to Chardonnay as it’s such a lightly hay tinge. Very good to see the legs of a viscous, giving a good sign of the oils in this dram. Very sweet on the nose, something like a cherry 🍒 flavour or some light fruitiness. There is a nice spiciness to the taste, there is nice finish which seems to be enhanced with a little water added. There is some kind of baked pear or apple which is hidden in amongst that spice on the finish.
