The Sipping Shed exists for the love of whisky. The history, the places, the people, the process, the unforgettable taste… the story of whisky. We wanted to tell that story our way, with our whisky and so The Sipping Shed was born…The Sipping Shed
Appearance – It’s light gold in colour, it’s very viscous and beads up on the glass and has lovely teardrop legs.
I love the viscous texture of Linkwood! #thewhiskeychaps #sippingshedwhisky— The Sipping Shed (@TheSippingShed) December 3, 2020
Nose – There’s some menthol here, sweet lemon, pineapple slices, red cherries, it’s so fruity. I’m also getting some cereal notes, sweet pastries, apricots too, and icing sugar, I do love this drop.
Reminds me of a fruit trifle 🙂 #thewhiskeychaps #sippingshedwhisky— Whisk(e)y Chap gbeng弄 (@whiskeychap) December 3, 2020
Palate – Man that’s a palate and a half, the abv works really well and we have strawberries, cherries, raspberries, apricots, nectarines, hard boiled fruit sweets. This develops into a more citrus fruitiness, grapefruits, pomelo, orange rind, there’s some white pepper too, and some oak coming through also.
peaches in syrup on the nose with touch of mint. You get a bit more of everything as the alcohol takes a back seat.#thewhiskeychaps #sippingshedwhisky— The Sipping Shed (@TheSippingShed) December 3, 2020
Finish – Long, very fruity, wood and white pepper spices, it’s quite gentle tbh, and a darker fruit note also comes through just before it starts to fade, so nice.
Its not a long finish but it invites you back to the glass for more. Nice balance as it fades.#thewhiskeychaps #sippingshedwhisky— The Sipping Shed (@TheSippingShed) December 3, 2020
My thoughts – I tried this Linkwood in a Tweet tasting and fell in love with it, it’s so confectionary like, and i love that flavour profile, it is a favourite to be honest.
Would i buy a bottle? – For me, who really likes this flavour profile, its a definite yes.
Notes – This bottling is presented in its natural colour, non chill filtered, and at cask strength.
