Tasting Notes

They say quality counts, and this dram has my number! This is a seriously sensational whisky. The elegance of Linkwood, one of Speyside’s finest, marries perfectly with the glorious earthy oak and Madeira richness and raisin spice. Brilliantly rich and fruity notes complement the hint of toasty oak with exceptional balance. This dram lingers like a summer lover, complete with a lovely tingle of spicy oak. Simply Firkin delectable.

About This Whisky

We want to take you on a journey with Firkin Ten. We've married whisky from the Linkwood distillery in Speyside with the tangy and spicy richness of Portuguese Madeira wine. Sounds crazy, but in our double oak hand-built casks; it’s just crazy enough to work.

Our custom single cask use a combination of American first-fill Bourbon staves and new French Limousin oak staves with a custom char. This double oak cask, in combination with the spicy richness of Madeira, creates a unique flavour profile.
