Tasting Notes: By Christian Simunic

 

 

Nose: Delicious sherry with dark fruits, grapes, honey, cacao and fruitcake.

Palate: For a few seconds, the sherry dominates. Then comes spicy oak with a little bitterness. Coffee.Full and harmonic.

Finish: Oak, but now with dark chocolate. Also a bit bitterness is there. Long and warming.

A very delicious Knockando. Matured in a First Fill Sherry Casks.

 

Producer's Informations:

 

Only natural ingredients are used - malted barley, yeast and crystal clear spring water from the Cardnach spring, which lies in the hills above the distillery. And the quantity of peat used in malting the barley is carefully controlled so as not to overbalance the taste of the final product, and the proportion of sherry casks used is restricted so as to not dominate the taste of the whisky.

Time is another key element, as gentle maturation in oak casks slowly reveal the subtle aromas: delicate with a distinctive fresh almond note in its younger versions, it gains weight and depth of flavour over the years.

The final result is a subtle, fruity single malt which bears all the hall marks of the finest Speyside malts
