A rare bottle of delicate and elegant vibes from the Speyside region.

Linkwood 12YO comes from the Linkwood Distillery in Elgin in the Speyside region. Built in 1821 by Peter Brown, today the distillery produces Whisky for blends such as Johnnie Walker, Haig, Bells, and White Horse; only 2% of the Whisky is actually used for single malts.

That’s why we’re all the more excited when these guys put out a Single Malt as the juice is always oh-so-special. Linkwood 12 Year Old Flora and Fauna is part of Diageo’s collection that highlights special bottlings from such malt Whisky distilleries. This unique Whisky begins with caramel cream, apples, and plums that develop into baking spices on the soft and gentle palate that rounds up with toasted cereal, honey, and almonds. Delicate and elegant are the words you’re looking for, essentially.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Linkwood Distillery was named after the Burn of Linkwood, which is very near to the distillery and a source of cooling water.
Linkwood is different from many distilleries, because it has two different still houses.
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.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
