Knockando 15

This is a 15 year old single malt scotch whisky from Speyside. Knockando means “little black hill” in Gaelic

Bottled at 43% alcohol per volume

Distilled in 2003

Matured in refill bourbon and sherry casks.

On the nose

Love the Xmas nose on this one. The sherry is there but not overwhelming the rest of the aromas. Dried fruit cooking on the stove. Some little spice and some chocolate notes. Very pleasing.

The taste test

Loads of fruity flavours coming out. From nose to taste buds The bourbon cask comes through but being ex bourbon cask does not add to much bitter or dark chocolate notes. The sherry is still there and makes it a pleasant experience

Love the wooden box presentation set.

7/10
