Knockando 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl
An especially delicate, fruity and subtle Speyside. Smooth but complex layers of flowery, nutty and slightly smoky notes.
Serving Suggestion: Best served in a traditional whisky glass with water and one or two ice cubes.
A light body and mouthfeel, as might be expected.
Fruity-floral at first - flowering currant, a 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.
Light mouthfeel, pleasantly sweet, central palate, drying lightly, with a trace of acidity.
Relatively short. Clean and easy to drink.
