Whisky Reviews for Knockando 1990
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.93 points
- A whisky very simple and without great complexity. Happily slightly creamy and a little greedy mouth, on caramel and dried fruits, but it lacks the fresh air.
- A pleased allday dram.
Soft and silky, malt and bright fruit. Slightly fresh on the nose with a hint of caramel and sherry.
Sherry again. Creamy and sweet. Vanilla, caramel and a little dark chocolate.
Short to mid-length with a little sherry.
- This Speysider is inoffensive and easy-drinking. Through the vatting of
sherried and ex-bourbon matured whiskies the entire thing remains
balanced all the way. Only the finish is way too short for an 18yo.
Fresh and full of tropical fruits, such as papaya, guava, cantaloupe.
Marshmallows, caramel, and vanilla keep the entire nose very syrupy and
sweet. Interestingly, with a little air the citrus fruits like blood
oranges become more obvious.
Pleasant but rather light. A mild bitterness testifies to a more
pronounced sherrywood influence now. Not too sweet on the palate. More
ripe oranges, barley sugar, brazil nuts.
Rather short, because any hint of oak and fruit is gone too soon. A slightest touch of cherry schnapps remains.
- Agree with Quaker, softer and more complex than the 12 years old. More woody and more "sherry" (caramel, hazelnut)
- The extra years benefit this Knockando who passes in front of his little brother of 12 :)
Less aggressive than 12 years old. Always focused on the almond but with more sweetness, roundness and woody notes. Mild smell of cherry and vanilla.
It confirms the sweetness perceived on the nose (always compared to the 12 years old) with always a little almond. I have a dominant sensation of malt, it makes me think of beer!
Good length, woody, malty.
