I had a taste of Linkwood single-malt (that I thought was very good!) recently while on vacation in Scotland. It is from Speyside.
Does anyone know much about it? How available is it in the U.S.?
Linkwood is great. I've had some fantastic Linkwoods. It's a Speyside, but a rugged one. The first time I had it, I would have pegged it as a Northern Highlander.
The distillery bottlings of Linkwood, part of the Diageo Flora & Fauna series, are unfortunately not exported to the US. There are a number of independent bottlings of Linkwood that are available here. I found seven on the Binny's website, but pretty pricey: http://www.binnys.com/spirits/search/...
One of the harder to find malts, but worth the effort.
