Knockando 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Tasting note: Pale straw / gold colour with a pale green blush. The soft, clean, mild aroma is attractive but needs teasing out. It offers sweet, faintly peated malt over more delicate notes of waxy green apple peel, spice and vanilla. Light, silky entry. A malty, vanilla sweetness at mid palate has a sense of lightness, building in depth, augmented by a surge of spices at the finish. Perfect balance. A mildly tangy sensation counters the malt sweetness and dries the mouth, followed by a grassy aftertaste that, while not intense, offers surprising persistence. Sometimes it’s the dearth of complexity and tonnage that makes for the most satisfying ‘end of the day drams’. This is one of those whiskies. 43% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... Some lovely moments here for sure. But just too fleeting. 82 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2021
