General description

Tasting @ whisky café L&B Amsterdam. Round 2.
This Knockando 18Y slow sherry matured comes from Speyside at 43%, it's uncoloured and unfiltered.
Knockando is Gaelic for little black hill.

Nice legs are sliding down, whilst fruity sweetness rises from my nosing glass.
A nice fruity sweetness of pear and apple accompanied by vanilla and toffee. 2nd nosing turned a bit floral. Nice.

On the palate it is even sweeter with again heavy toffee and caramel. A malty orange and bitter nut takes some time to develop. The palate ends with a dry cinnamon.

The medium sweet spicy finish is teeth covering. summer fruits can be detected and is balanced with the bitter coffee/chocolate. Although very mellow and nice, this 18Y lost some points on it's shortage.

Considering it's price I would recommend this one to all of you.
I checked two dutch online shops. Both have this one as cheapest 18Y available. It's even cheaper than the Chivas Regal 18.
It's about 44€/70CL.

80 points.
