Linkwood 12 year old Ferg & Harris
This exquisite Single Malt Scotch Whisky traces its origins to the distinguished Linkwood Distillery, nestled on the outskirts of Elgin in the renowned Speyside region. A substantial quantity of this elixir was meticulously aged in a bourbon barrel, followed by an additional month of refinement in a virgin oak cask. The result is a liquid gold in hue, characterized by its formidable and robust nature.
Upon savoring this offering, one is greeted by a complex interplay of fragrant notes, including the enticing essence of sweet honey, the subtle warmth of toasted oak, and the subtle presence of dried fruits. Its texture is exceptionally smooth and creamy, graced by delicate undertones of gentle spice.

Linkwood distillery is located close to Elgin in the Speyside. It was built in 1821 but only started operations in 1824 once the Excise Act 1823 was enacted. The distillery operated under the management of an appointed master distiller until the death of the founder Peter Brown. His son William Brown took control of the distillery immediately after his death.
The distillery was rebuilt between 1872 and 1873 and the production capacity was increased. The distillery operated independently until William Brown's death. His family formed the Linkwood-Glenlivet Co. after his passing and expanded the production capacity once more. Innes Cameron, who went on to become the largest shareholder at Linkwood-Glenlivet, joined the company in 1902.
