    I don't have that much to say about this, apart from: it was good.

    I guess if I'm nit-picking, the sweetness of the fruit and the spice could possibly have been integrated better, as they essentially follow two separate tracks, but I'm really reaching.

    The mouthfeel was fine. Not much to write home about, but nothing it can be docked points for, either.

    The only real criticisms are the lack of info on the aging and suspicious omissions around NCF and added colour.

      Heavy tones of stewed and dried stone fruits plus fresh, ripe figs are the first out of the gate. Sharper, but still cooked is gooseberry and then, more confectionary style and artificial flavours take over dressed as fruit salad candies. There is fresh and pungent cinnamon bark tinged with vanilla, candied almonds, spun sugar and orange essence, as well as swirled milk and white chocolate.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Ripe peaches and nectarines, doused in amaretto impact first, quickly coating everything. Next, that coating triggers a simultaneous build of leather, oak, and moderate ginger, punctuated by fleeting spearmint spike.
    • Finish

      Restrained and not too drying leather and unrolled tobacco are briefly in control, before relinquishing to cardamom puff pastry and a continued, almost bristled spice that leaves a flint and orange syrup trail in its wake

    • Nose
      Fresh, slightly alcoholic. Dry earth. Green apples, limes. Somewhat moldy wood. A touch of chlorine.
    • Taste
      Sweet. Honey, light grapes, white wine. Some pepper, walnut. To end wet cardboard and vodka lemon.

    I believe the casks used in this vary from 9 to 25 years maturation.

    New and blindfolded. Do not regret!
    • Nose
      Starts mainly with citrus and light sherry. Nice fresh with grasses. Also some butter.
    • Taste
      Sweet onset, warm mouthfeel. Balanced fruit, brown sugar, honey, vanilla in the background. The whole thing is caressed by oak.
    • Finish
      Short finish, beautiful Sherrynoten

    Pleasant to drink, but unfortunately I lack something here the complexity. Also, the barrels have not had too much influence. I think here mostly Second Fill was used ...
    • Nose
      Fresh grasses, slight Sherry note comes through, a trace of citrus, Overall, the nose is still quite restrained. Now there are fruit notes, some honey and yes, that could already be some oak that comes to light.
    • Taste
      pleasant mouthfeel, apples, citrus fruits, then getting sweeter, honey
    • Finish
      a sweetness with nuttiness stays on the palate, a little chocolate. The finish is quite short for my feeling.

    TASTING NOTE LMDW: The Knockdhu distillery surprises with a new detonating single malt! Silky and balanced, the third edition of this An Cnoc vintage is named after the New York Scottish artist who saw it born. This single malt, crossed in disorder by a cloud of spices, heady flowers, fresh fruit, beeswax, salted butter caramel, citrus and coconut, finishes at the end of the mouth by a magnificent fruit composed of small distinct drupes, raspberry.

    Profile: heady. White chocolate, flowers (lily, honeysuckle). Spices (gray pepper, star anise). Fresh fruits (pear, plum), almonds and green olives. Beeswax, acacia honey. Color: old gold. Nose: heady, firm. White chocolate and flowers (lily, honeysuckle) precede little spices (gray pepper, star anise). Tender, it spreads on fresh fruits (pear, plum), almonds and green olives. She gains gradually in creaminess (beeswax, acacia honey). Palate: silky, it is very different from the nose and feeds on melon, infused plants (wormwood), salted butter caramel and malted barley (bowl of cereals). Citrus fruits (lemon, grapefruit) invigorate the finish, while notes of vanilla and coconut gently soothe the palate. Final: balanced, rather saline. It leaves mostly yellow and white shades to take slightly apricot colors. Some red fruits are also appearing (strawberry, raspberry), unmistakable as they are delicate. Raspberry is gradually taking over. The grains of her skin are fleshy and her flesh is soft. The retro-olfaction evokes a raspberry ice cream. The empty glass adds cinnamon and a hint of ginger.
