Alcohol Content (%)
Taste: Light-weight but easy to drink. "Breakfast whisky!" A slow matured malt, accessible in both aroma and flavour, easy to drink, young at heart for an 18 year old. Nose: Simple and attractive - you want to taste it. Deep, rich fruit - ripe plums, tinned pears, tinned mandarin oranges after a while. Soft vanilla fudge. With water, still fruity but more acidic. A trace of caramelized brown sugar. Digestive biscuits. Palate: Pleasant to drink straight - sweet, with deeper almond notes, hints of sherry and light oak, some malty flavors. With a little water (not too much) still sweet and mouth-filling, some digestive biscuits.
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.
