I am not happy with the ADR Ord 12. I've added a little Sig Islay and Laga 16. Better.

Some thoughts on the Sig Linkwood 16 for Binny's.

Nose: it is waxy with butterscotch notes. candy-like but not overly so.
Palate: Butterscotch and fresh cut grass. an odd combo
Finish: long and delicious

with water....little bit of mintiness starts to come through now. still candy-like but thing Clark 5. Grass is like that which was cut 5 days earlier (on the palate). I like it both ways. Just not sure which is the best.
