About DS Tayman 12 Year Old Linkwood 2008 Second Edition
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.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
