Linkwood 21 Douglas Laing Old Particular, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
Located on the outskirts of Elgin (though now within its ever-growing suburbs) Linkwood was established in 1821, but only started production in 1824. Owner Peter Brown was the manager of the Linkwood Estate and wisely kept his nose clean until the 1823 Excise Act was on the stature book. Only 128 bottles are available.
