Great as an after dinner dram...Master of Malt
Knockando 18 Years Old is what they call a sipping malt.
From an isolated bend in the river Spey.
Deep, rich fruit; ripe plums, tinned pears, tinned mandarin oranges. Soft vanilla fudge. With water, still fruity but more acidic.
A real mouth-filling body.
Sweet, with deep almond notes, hints of sherry and light oak, some malty flavours. Still sweet and mouth-filling with a little water.
Medium length. Warm and smooth.
Age: 18 Years
Strength: 43% ABV
Place of Origin: Knockando
in brief… Light-weight but easy to drink. “Breakfast whisky!”
in a sentence… A slow matured malt, accessible in both aroma and flavour; easy to drink, young at heart for an 18 year old.
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 caramelised brown sugar. Digestive biscuits.
Pleasant to drink straight - sweet, with deeper almond notes, hints of sherry and light oak, some malty flavours. With a little water (not too much) still sweet and mouth-filling; some digestive biscuits.
