Alcohol Content (%)
The nose is quite gentle and very fragrant. Notes of waxy manuka honey, hints of malty barley and roots with a touch of stemmy cut hay. There is a very supple, chewy peat lying quietly in the background. The palate is quite full with notes of heather roots and damp earth, notes of honeyed sweetness with Jamaica ginger cake, a touch of rum with malty peat. The finish is quite long with winter spice and crystallized stem ginger with cereal notes.
How to Serve & Paring
Knockando 12 Year Old is best served in a traditional whisky glass with water and one or two ice cubes. Lightly smoky, nutty whiskies like Knockando find the savoury notes in vegetarian dishes such as tapenade or vegetarian haggis.
AN ESPECIALLY DELICATE, FRUITY SPEYSIDER
Built by John Thompson in 1898, the Knockando distillery sits next to the river Spey in the village of the same name. Derived from the Gaelic 'Cnoc-an-dhu' meaning 'little black hill', the distillery was founded during the Victorian whisky boom in 1898, but fell foul of dodgy distributors - closing in 1899 after just a year of production. W & A Gilbey soon took over, marking a change of fortunes for the distillery and for lovers of whisky everywhere. Only natural ingredients are used in the production of Knockando: malted barley, yeast and crystal clear spring water from the Cardnach spring, which lies in the hills above the distillery. Together, with time, they create a delicate whisky with a distinctive fresh almond note in its younger versions that gains weight and depth of flavour over the years. No doubt why Knockando whisky reviews are consistently good. Knockando stands proudly overlooking the river Spey. The product of this picturesque distillery has a Speyside character, through and through - being light, floral and delicate.
