Signatory 'Unchillfiltered' (distilled at Linkwood), 14 year old, 1990 vintage, 46%

Price: $43.00 Issue: Fall 2005 Reviewer: John Hansell

Obviously aged in a sherry cask. Juicy fruit, syrupy, a bit waxy, notes of maple syrup and spice (clove, mint). Nicely soothing, but there is a trade-off here-the soft, floral beauty which makes Linkwood malt so attractive is lost somewhere behind the sherry and escapes only briefly from time to time. (Bottled exclusively for Binny’s Beverage Depot.)
