2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.33 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A young Knockando which was bottled a long time ago. Typical light and gentle whisky the (American) public preferred in the 1970's, just before the big whisky bust.
    • Nose
      Grainy and cereal. Hay. Grapey fruitiness. A little perfumy. Quite dry.
    • Taste
      Unexpectedly oliy and sweet, Pear and melon. Chewy oakiness.  Almond nuts. Gentle tannins.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Nutiness again. Slightly peppery. Some bitterness at the end.

  2. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    N: grains, raspberry, honey and vanilla
    T: soft, honey, mellow earth and some peat
    F: vanilla and sweeat candy (tum-tum)
