Vintage whisky

On Tuesday evening I wandered to my favourite little bar in Amsterdam, the Cafe De Stil where they boast over 300 different whiskys behind the bar. Deciding for something a little different, I was presented with a bottle of Linkwood 34 year old whisky, distilled in 1969 - 6 years before I was born! I couldn't resist at all, and at €17 per glass, I splurged out and sampled some.

At this price, I certainly wasn't disappointed. 34 years in the cask gave it an intense but very smooth flavour, and the nose of it was wonderful - I could have sniffed it all night.

It goes down the oldest and most expensive, yet one of the most satisfying whiskys I've ever had the pleasure of drinking.
