  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    One of the most beautiful Knockdhu I've ever tasted! We must believe that sherry suits him well.
    Enthusiasm 4/5
    Whisky n ° 1390
    • Nose
      Spices (pepper, clove). Walk in the forest: undergrowth, leaves. Roundness. Light Sherry. Vanilla
    • Taste
      Round, intense but without aggressiveness. Juicy and spicy.
    • Finish
      Long and spicy.

  2. Allandale scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Body: Medium. Very smooth. 
    • Nose
      Sweet.  Mint toffee. Hints of chocolate? 
    • Taste
      Butterscotch sauce. Lovely. Oat cookies with raisins. Ginger snaps.

      Very nice. Delicious.
    • Finish
      Long and warming. Dessert dram? On the ice-cream. Lovely sweetness.
