Colour: pale gold. Nose: wow, it’s beautifully fresh, with lots of toasted cereals, fresh white fruits and flowers from the fields at first nosing. Quite complex! Develops on lots of fruity notes (apples and pears, watermelon, bananas, white currants, yellow peaches), with also whiffs of smoke and some distant notes of wax, furniture polish, fresh mint leaves… Also kind of a metallic smell (and also passion fruits and fresh pineapples, roses) that keep it most lively. Just superb! Mouth: oh, this is funny, the funny metallic flavours are here right from the start – the old bottle effect, for sure. Quite grainy, with some burnt notes, lots of liquorice, unsugared tea, fudge… No fruits this time but quite some waxy notes again, and even some rubber. The finish isn’t too long but enjoyable, on lavender honey and orange juice… A stupendous nose and a very nice mouth, like in many old bottles. Anyway, 88 points for this old Linkwood.
