A 1956 vintage Linkwood, back from the days when sticking a '-Glenlivet' on the end of the distillery name was common in Speyside, distilled in May and bottled in April 1979 by Cadenhead's at 22 years of age.
An hyper-floral and hyper-honeyed nose, with also a lot of wax and notes of old furniture. Hints of high-end scented soap and cologne.Wonderful. The palate is a bit bitterer but still beautiful. Also rose jelly and marzipan. Rich and complex. SGP:835 - 90 points. (and thanks, Heinz)
