DS Tayman 12 Year Old Linkwood 2008 Second Edition

Most of the whisky from the Linkwood Distillery from the Speyside region of Scotland goes into Diageo's blends. This release is a chance to try it in single malt form. Aged 12 years in ex-bourbon casks, it was finished in wine barrels from the Israeli Flam Winery.

With nearly 2 decades of experience in the industry, Danny Saltman decided it was time to create a new single malt Scotch whisky brand. This is how the independent bottler DS Tayman came to be. The brand is focused on seeking out single casks, meaning that each release is super limited. With exceptional casks hand-chosen from remote places of Scotland, they aim to bring unique whisky to the market, selecting the spirits based on unique appearance, smell, and flavor. Each aged whisky then gets a round of finishing in carefully selected wine or port casks.

The Linkwood Distillery is a whisky distillery in Elgin in the Speyside region. The distillery was built in 1821 by Peter Brown. Today the distillery is a workhorse of the Diageo machine producing whisky for blends such as Johnnie Walker, Haig, Bells, and White Horse with only a minuscule 2% used for single malts. This makes this DS Tayman release quite a rarity. Distilled in 2008 and aged in ex-bourbon casks, the expression was then finished in casks that used to hold red wine from the Israeli Flam Winery. Fruity with a gentle sweetness, toasted oak, vanilla, and gentle spice notes, this 92-proof whisky is a rare chance of tasting a single malt from the Linkwood distillery.
