On the nose, the Linkwood 10 offers a delightful combination of floral and fruity notes.

These aromas are perfectly complemented by the subtle vanilla and oak notes that are characteristic of bourbon cask maturation.

The palate of this Linkwood 10 is a treat for the taste buds. It's savory and mouth-watering, with a touch of sea salt that balances out the sweetness of the green apples that shine through. The flavors are perfectly integrated and harmonious, creating a whisky that is both complex and easy to drink. This is a whisky that you'll want to savor slowly, taking the time to appreciate every nuance.

The finish is long and persistent, leaving a pleasant and warming sensation in your mouth. The flavors of green apples and sea salt linger, inviting you to take another sip. This Linkwood 10 is a whisky that will leave you wanting more, with its delicious and well-balanced flavor profile that is a testament to the skill of the master distiller and the importance of cask selection.

Linkwood was founded in Speyside in 1821 by Peter Brown.   In 1971, a new distillery equipped with four stills and named Linkwood B was added to the older distillery built in 1821 by Peter Brown, which was renamed Linkwood A. The two facilities worked as a pair until 1985 and then again from 1990 to 1996, before Linkwood A closed permanently. With absolutely remarkable finesse this Linkwood has an exceptional balance between influence from the first-fill bourbon casks and the distilleries spirit style.  Expect Mirabelle plum, banana and honey on the nose with cinnamon, vanilla and candid lemon noted hovering seamlessly from palate to finish. 

A reflection of the richness and diversity of Scotch Whisky, the Artist Collective range covers a wide variety of styles, maturations and regions in small batches selected every year from around a hundred samples. Even more ambitious than previous editions, this sixth collection is composed of eight single malts from Speyside, Highland and Islay, distilled between 2008 and 2013.   Now one of the flagship ranges from La Maison Du Whisky and an amazing reflection of their ethos, skills and knowledge when it comes to bottling exceptional single malt whisky.
