.linkwood 23yo – smws 39.94 – an exotic privilege

We joined in a “whisky for a year” bottle share back in 2014, where we received an smws bottle(share) each month. Good times, I only never got around to taste them until now. A shame really…

Palate: sweet, fruity, mushy warm red apples, apple sauce, citrus, oranges, tangerines, spicy, white pepper, a hint of cinnamon
