Released as part of the Diageo Special Releases 2016 collection, this limited edition Speyside Single Malt was distilled in 1978 at Linkwood distillery. It?s been eight years since Linkwood featured on Diageo’s annual list and some reckon it to be the finest of the 2016 releases. Rarely available as a single malt, this expression was matured in refill American oak hogsheads and refill European oak butts.
Only 1 or 2% of the production is marketed as single malt, the remaining being used in the blends of the UDV group, White Horse, Haig, Bells and Dimple amongst others.
Only 6,114 individually numbered bottles have been produced at natural cask strength.
