Knockando 15 – 1998
It’s the 1998 vintage 15 year old expression from the Knockando distillery in Speyside. Aged in a combination of Sherry and bourbon casks, this mostly certainly lives up to the tagline on the label – “Richly Matured”.
Nose: Chocolate muffins, cooked apple and a few fragrant hints of floral malt.
Palate: Rounded red fruit notes arrive on the palate, joined by banana fritters and toasted teacakes.
Finish: Mocha and raisins, with a little hint of cinnamon.
