1989 Linkwood 27 Year Old "John Milroy" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1288106

The wonderful John Milroy's line of Single Malt Single Cask Scotch is finally back and we're proud to be the exclusive purveyor of this special brand in California. The legacy of the Milroy's name goes back to 1964, when John "Jack" Milroy opened a little wine shop at #3 Greek St in an upscale neighborhood on the west end of London. Over the next 30 years, the Milroys and their talented store manager, Doug McIver, would make the Milroy name synonymous with exceptional single cask Scotch. Eventually, Mr. McIver moved on to become the head of the venerable Berry Bros & Rudd Spirits Department and Jack Milroy struck out on his own creating the equally well regarded "John Milroy Selection" brand of single cask single malts. In 2009, Jack tapped Doug as his pick to take the special line of Scotch into the new century - partnering with Berry's would ensure that only the very best whisky would be bottled under the Milroy name. Doug takes this spiritual legacy seriously and he's finally put together a portfolio of exceptional single casks and we're proud to be his partners in California. Another stupendous Linkwood, this one well into its second decade of maturity. While not as strikingly inexpensive as the Old Particular we sold last month, Linkwood over 25 years old is EXTREMELY rare. Creamy, complex and ultra inviting, we rarely get to experience malt this old and affordable.

This Linkwood has an awesome, and very unique, "old wood" aroma that instantly makes your head spin (in a GREAT way). Beautiful and muted citrus zest, dark molasses, and a faint musky undertone round this scotch out. With loads of complexities and a great mouthfeel, the easy-going alcohol content make this juice go down nice and smooth. Grassy notes on the palate truly give this Scotch a sense of place. Settle into the couch after dinner with a glass of this.

I always look forward to getting a bottling from Linkwood because Linkwood usually offers both good aromatics and great flavors. This bottling from John Milroy has an expressive and pronounced nose of honey and beeswax. In the mouth it is juicy with light and pretty notes of honey and a delicious finish. I tasted this offering with no additional water.

Here is some really old whisky from a great hard to find distillery for a wonderful price. The nose is all fudge, fruit, and sweet malt. Please don't add more than the tiniest drop of water (if that) as it's naturally down to near 90 proof. It must have been in a very humid part of the warehouse. Some air and we start to get baking bread, whiffs of marmalade and old exotic wood. The palate is ultra buttery in texture, luscious and fruit forward. A stupendously drinkable old malt that remains fresh and ultra balanced despite the intense age. A total treat to find such old wonderful whisky at this spectacular price.
