General description

Very elegant and complex, nothing disturbes the joy of drinking, but the nose is much more interesting than the taste.

Nose

Blood orange, vanilla, cashews raspberry, dates, stewed plums. Very fine and changing sherry nose, much to explore.

Palate

Very mild and round, creamy with caramel, seasalt and milkchocolate.

Finish

Mild oak, not bitter at all, fading fast.

General description

No longer available retail in US, I learned to love scotch on Knockando. This 15 year old is the best of breed to me. Nutty (like all Knockandos) and stronger than most, with a lingering, smooth finish. Not smoky or peaty, just a pleasant sweetness in the background.

General description

Warm at taste, even if I expected more from a 15 years "richly matured". Good, but a bit flat ending.
