"Probably not for the average malt freak but we’ve seen many bottlings for malt freaks that weren’t as good as this rather humble Knockando." So writes Malt Maniac, Serge Valentin. The Master Reserve 21 year old is a highpoint in the Knockando range, sourced from x Sherry and Bourbon casks lying in the coolest part of the warehouse. According to distillery manager, Duncan Tait, these take longer to mature and the resulting malt is extremely smooth. Each bottle of the Master Reserve is labelled with the year of distillation. Please note: This may change without notice.In Gaelic, Knockando (Cnoc-an-dhu) means "little black hillock". The distillery sits on a tree-covered hill that overlooks a sweeping panorama of the Spey river. The Knockando distillery was founded in 1898 by John Thomson and in the early 1900's, was the first Speyside distillery to use electricity. Closed two years after its creation, it was then acquired by W&A Gilbey Ltd, the famous gin producers from London in 1904. The distillery was rebuilt in 1969, when it doubled its production capacity. Knockando became part of IDV/Gran Metropolitan in 1975. Its single malt is always bottled as a vintage, however only 8% of the production is marketed as single malt, the remaining part being used for the blends J&B and Spey Royal. The somewhat unusual ages at which Knockando can be found is due to the long-standing practice/philosophy of bottling the casks only when they are deemed to be at their peak maturation, as opposed to bottling them automatically at certain ages. This same philosophy dictates that the use of sherry casks is deliberately kept to a minimum in order to preserve the distillery's natural delicate flavour. Lightly smoky, fruity, nutty whiskies like Knockando complement the savoury notes in vegetarian dishes such as tapenade or vegetarian haggis.
