Knockando 12 Year Old (1x 70cl)

In each bottle of Knockando whisky you will only ever find the produce of a single season, or year of production – a practice which continues to distinguish this delicate Speyside from almost all other single malts. 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. There is no doubt as to why Knockando whisky reviews are consistently good.

The aromas are fruity-floral at first - flowering currant, hint of blackcurrant - with some ash or char in the background (scorched brown toast?) and after a while a trace of damp linen. Water brings up cereal notes (principally maize), and some meaty aromas. The development is towards scorched paper - fragile and no off-notes. The palate has a light mouthfeel, pleasantly sweet, central palate, drying lightly, with a trace of acidity.

Lightly smoky, nutty whiskies like Knockando find the savoury notes in vegetarian dishes such as tapenade or vegetarian haggis.
