Whisky Reviews for Knockando 1972

- Pairs beautifully with cigars
- he had really great beginnings in his nose, but as with many Knockando, I have strangely intense tart notes. That’s something you have to like.
But the nose is so beautiful that it would have got (almost) a grade better.
the nose is bursting with ripe yellow fruits, tropical, a real fruit basket, very sweet, malty, some oak spice, something ripe, although it is only a 12y old whisky.
Somehow appetizing. Dreamlike nose. After a while a little wobbly with minimal cardboard notes, the 40% stop again.
The honey-like sweetness and the tropical fruity notes lightly flash at the beginning, then a very unusual bitterness settles in the mouth
and fill it in completely. Very special. The second sip is a little gentler.
But the bitterness pulls into the finish. Chicory and honey and light fruits, followed by dry oak. Also tingling, a lot of oak spice, really not a tame whisky.
