Knockando Scotch Whisky
£35.49 (£50.70 per litre)
Single Malt Whisky from Speyside and every bottle bears a vintage from a single season of distillation. Subtly fruity, also has delicate aromas of toffee, cereals, almonds and hazelnuts. Best served in a traditional whisky glass with water and one or two ice cubes. Slowly aged 12 years for a especially delicate, fruity and subtle flavour. Ideal gift for drinkers looking to explore Speyside Single Malt Whiskies known for their light, delicate floral style.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. 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. No doubt why Knockando whisky reviews are consistently good. Especially delicate, fruity and subtle Speyside: smooth but complex layers of flowery, nutty and slightly smoky notes. Find the savoury notes in vegetarian dishes such as tapenade or vegetarian haggis. Knockando 12yo makes an ideal gift for drinkers looking to explore Speyside Single Malt Whiskies known for their light, delicate floral style.
