N: alcohol, malty, light sherry, sweet, caamel, light citrus.

P:Light to medium body. short finish. bitter ending.

C: Brown.

N: Woody, flower, light malt, anmal, sour mash.

P: Medium body, medium finish. quite clear sherry note. salty finish.

C: brown.

N: gun powder. plum, very nice.

P: very sweet, medium body. medium short finish.

C: 80 points. nosing like sherry, too sweet in palate. 不太像port finish. 整體來說這三支Linkwood過桶做的不太好,但是包裝真的很不錯, 瘦長的三支擺在一起相當吸引人, 連我都很想買一套收藏.

C: Light yellow.

N: Medical, citrus, peat, bourbon cask, fruit.

P: Medium light body. medium finish.

C: Yellow.

N: Grassy, light sherry influence. almost no peat, Clynelish?

P: Medium light body, medium finish. still not Brora.

C: Light yellow.

N: New make, citrus, peat, strong.

P: Light body medium finish.

C: brown.

N: Sweet, island.

P: Quite nice island malt, sweet.

C: 88 points. a good Taliker. 標準島嶼麥芽,也如預期的甜, 果然不愧是過PX桶的產品. 之前只給了82, 顯然是給低了.

N: Citrus very fruity.

P: a little bit pepper, dry.

P: Light body, medium finish.
