Solasta - Linkwood 9 Year Old
Creamy custard, summer valley, juicy fresh mango and zingy pineapple. A breath of charred wood with a savoury, balancing note
Birthday party vanilla sponge cake, freshly cut grass and honeydew melon, chased by a fresh citrus wave of lemonade.
Medium finish, a nice refreshing dram that sticks around for just the right amount of time. Caramelised orange peels are spiced up with a sprinkle of crushed peppercorns.
Cask Type: Ex-Bourbon Hogshead
Bottle Size: 700 ml
Solasta translates from Scottish Gaelic as bright, luminous and shining...
A fitting description indeed for such a brilliant dram!
Solasta Spirits are an independent bottler based out of Glasgow, Scotland. A group of young people bonded by the love of whisky.
This 9 year old Speysider was distilled at the Linkwood distillery and then matured for almost a decade in an ex-bourbon hogshead cask. It was then bottled at cask strength (51.5% ABV) with no chill filtration or colouring.
The contemporary and creative use of a predominantly clear label, showcases the true colour of the whisky. Solasta say, "let the malt shine its own light"
