Linkwood 9 Year Old 2012 – Benchmark (Murray McDavid) Whisky (50% abv)


About Murray McDavid

Founded in 1994 by Mark Reynier (current CEO of Waterford and Renegade), Simon Coughlin and Gordon Wright (Springbank Distillery), Murray McDavid quickly made a name for itself with maturation in exquisite barrels. The team is also known for taking over and “rescuing” the Bruichladdich Distillery.

Linkwood 9yo 2012 McDavid
The Benchmark series from indie bottler Murray McDavid features all kinds of splendid Scotch whiskies and this single malt from Linkwood makes the perfect addition. Distilled in 2012, the whisky was finished in a trio of Port, oloroso, and Pedro Ximénez casks before it was bottled up at nine years old in 2023. A release of 1,032 bottles.

Tasting Note by Master of Malt
Nose Gooey flapjack, loaded with dried berries and raisins, a touch of dried apple, and candied ginger.

Palate Dustings of cocoa join buttery shortbread and creamy malt, with candied fruit and jammy currants bolstered by dense baking spice.

Finish Honeyed sweetness lingers while juicy oak and marmalade counter wintery spice.
