The latest single cask release from the team at Little Brown Dog is from Linkwood Distillery.

Distilled in the Speyside distillery in June 2008, the whisky has been finished for 6 months in the Petit Chien Brun French Brandy cask before being bottled in July 2021. The brandy cask adds an extra layer of perfume and complexity without overpowering the spirit.   

Naturally coloured, non chill-filtered and bottled at cask strength. 

Only 380 bottles released.

Tasting Notes

The nose is sweet and fruity with notes of melon, sour plums and a gooseberry fool. On the palate you get rhubarb jam and prunes before a finish of stem ginger, sour grapes and a little black pepper spice.

The perfect serve

Best enjoyed the way you like to serve it!
