Linkwood 42yo 1974 (70cl, 40.9%)
If you were ever going to bottle a 42 year old single malt Scotch whisky from Linkwood of natural colour and at a cask strength 40.9% ABV, you could only ever release it in a range called the Cask Strength Collection Rare Reserve, couldn't you?
Well, Signatory had the same idea. After distillation took place all the way back on the 31st May 1974 and two hogshead bourbon barrels (8440 & 8441) had finished ageing the whisky for 42 years, the independent bottlers did the honours and bottled the whisky on 1st February 2017.

Palate: Loads of caramel and pear drop sweetness, with a handful of malted barley, yum yums, a gentle citric acidity and earthy cedar.
Finish: Delicate oak, toffee apples and rich espresso beans, with a dusting of
