Whisky Reviews for Knockando 12-year-old

- That’s something a little different at the entry level division. It’s like a liquid distillery in a glass. Plus milk chocolate, apple and Russian kvass. There’s this funky mixture of an aroma combining malty malt, coffee smoothie and fresh juice at once. Or maybe it's that Slavic 'delicacy' — Hematogen bar? Some light mineral qualities, and it’s very refreshing. Anyway, I really like it. And it’s 43%.
- I'm positively surprised. I like it
Not very intense but fine. Fresh, light-fruited, floral. Then maltier vanilliger, later reminds even of cream toffee, however, without losing the freshness and again and again beat the bright fruit.
Nutty (probably hazelnut / almond) Vanilla is added. Pleasantly soft + this nutty spiciness.
Medium dry a bit. Again, the nuts are found again. Reminds you of the toffee but leaves a fresh impression.
- Beautiful entry-level malt.
fruity, floral with vanilla notes, light smoke, raisins and sweetness
Light sweetness, grasses, pepper with toffee.
Pepper, sweet and chocolate, long-lasting finish, later dry.
- Exam passed, even without vintage a nice, nifty, inexpensive beginner for 29 €, not spectacular, but pleasant. To nose & nut: Unfortunately, I had none of the earlier batches in direct comparison, so do not know how strong there were the fluctuations. Will probably now without vintage but also no more or less fluctuate than earlier with, sometimes watch.
Vanilla, lemon, some cereals, quite fresh, after a while caramel joins in (seems a bit fresher than the previous 12-year season bottlings with year, the usual Nussigkeit I can not find)
creamy, fuller and heavier / sweeter than the nose can be expected, clearly nutty, nougat, nutella, milk chocolate, longer in the mouth it becomes woody-spicy with some brandy bean
medium-long, first molasses, brandy bean, then woody-dry
