Linlithgowt 30 Year Old
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Region

Lowland.

Appearance

Pale, shimmering gold.

Nose

Deep fruity nose – cherries, kirsch, strawberry jam, heady roses, develops traces of Black Forest Gateau, then freshens to unripe cherries and tinned pears, with almonds behind. Adding water brings up pear-drops and acetone at first, then crème brulee and burnt orange marmalade (faint peat). Later some tangerine and passion fruit notes.

Body

Light, slightly waxy, with good viscosity.

Palate

Very expressive, surprisingly fruity. Jammy sweetness and considerable fresh acidity. An interesting cedar-dry medicinal development (like inhaling an old- fashioned cough remedy). Chocolate spread on toast.

Finish

Dries out into a warming, lightly bitter, short finish, leaving a ghost of chocolate orange.
