Whisky Reviews for Knockando 1991

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.81 points

  1. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    A lot of spices in the first nose (pepper, cinnamon, clove), a little honey, a bit of wax and orange and a pretty green side. Mouth very bitter and too woody, the barrel crushed the spirit. Bitter finish on tannins. Not very good.

  2. Ivynor scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Not bad, but alas the choice of barrels and dilution do not draw a complex and balanced whisky. Below the 1990 vintage.
    • Nose
      A lot of wood, wax and some spices, all emerging from a rather alcoholic set. With aeration, some floral notes and orange zest.
    • Taste
      Rather sweet and easy, with the smoothness of a caramel cream. Alas, where the big barrel goes, the whisky does not grow again. The wood is very marked, with plank and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Wood, vanilla cream.

  3. tomy63 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    pale gold color, discreet nose, vanilla, spices, cereals. Bouch a little alcoholic, orange, cereals, caramel, a lot of wood, made very young. Final short, bitter and woody. Quite different and well below the 18ans 1990, a batch problem?

  4. Lucas Falchero scored this whisky 79 points Member Senior

    A whisky of good quality. Nothing more. Solid without surprise.
    • Nose
      A little chemical; almost solvent. Hazelnut and xeres. I also find the flower, without being able to identify which one. Clove. From the orange. Nose dry enough.
    • Taste
      Homogeneous, well associated alcohol. Dirty. Not very expressive. Oak barrel. A hint of nuts, or hazelnut. An offset with the nose. A little bitterness.
    • Finish
      Short. Bitter. A little disappointing. Easy enough.
