mini-review of 14-yr.-old Links “Carnoustie”

Well, this is a mini-review since I’m writing on my iPhone.

Based on the color, this whisky wasn’t aged only in bourbon casks — it isn’t so dark as to indicate long-term exposure to Sherry butts or Port pipes.

It’s got a lovely caramel color (natural of course!) and there is a hint of peat in the nose. It reminds me a bit of Highland Park 18 in the citrus flavors. The finish is very nice. What I get in the mouth is toffee and other sweet flavors. And of course, it’s got the lovely barley flavors — it’s whisky, after all! — and a small amount of peat (I think). It’s 46% ABV so it really does not need water.
