The Fuzzy Trio is joined by a beautiful Swan of a Speyside Single Malt.

Adventures are best when shared. That’s what drove the eponymous Deer, Bear, and Moose all the way up to the idyllic country town of Elgin, Speyside. There, they rendezvoused with the famous local residents, the Swans. They were happy to let them in on a little town secret: Sherry Butt no. 70033914. You see, the premises of the Linkwood distillery are so animal-friendly, the spiders have permanent residence inside the still house for fear that if they leave, the environment that produces outstanding Whisky would never be the same again.

It was all The Trio needed to hear to grab the chance of celebrating their newfound friendship with a delicious 12-year-old Single Malt Scotch — a "duckling turned into a beautiful swan" that came home as the new addition to the range.

It’s not always about great Whisky; it’s also about great friends we make along the way. But it’s mostly about Whisky. Cheers to beautiful Swans, anyway!

Appearance / Color
Light gold with a ruby hue.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
Light as a feather astringent, with sherry, almond, marzipan, apple pie, and oak gently gliding on the surface.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Beautiful notes of chocolate, gingerbread, apple pie, sherry, and toffee candy. Floral.

Finish
​​​​​​Very long for its age and overwhelming, just like the ending of the Swan Lake ballet — in a good way, obviously. Complex hints of sherry.

During the annual 'Spirit of Speyside Festival', a special tour is offered called 'The Laich of Moray'. This tour covers all four of Diageo's single malt distilleries, including Linkwood.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
