Linkwood 1997 Cadenhead's 20 Year Old Small Batch

Although famed for their single cask releases, Wm. Cadenhead also produce this small batch series, bottled from vattings of never more than four casks from a single vintage and distillery. As with all their bottlings, these are non-chillfiltered with no added colouring.

A Linkwood, this was distilled in 1997 and matured in two bourbon hogsheads for 20 years.

Linkwood single malt has always been considered a key component of many popular blends, such as Johnnie Walker and White Horse, with much of its output reserved for these as a result. In 1982 it was selected for the Ascot Malt Cellar range by DCL, an early precursor to the Classic Malts range later launched by United Distillers. It had been on the short-list for the subsequent range at the time, but the company eventually opted for Cragganmore as the Speyside representative instead, later opting to revive the 12 year old under the Flora & Fauna brand. That remains the only permanent distillery bottling, but independent releases like this are more common however.

One of 498 bottles.
