Whisky Reviews for Knockando 2000

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 79.35 points

  1. Fortuna1895 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Significantly drier than the 1997 edition. Quite pleasant, but unfortunately not as good as the said 97er.
    • Nose
      The nose gets vanilla, a nut mix and a hint of oak offered. Water opens malt, a very light spice, nutshells, but also a small fruitiness garnished with oak and ground very dry nuts.
    • Taste
      Knockando-typical soft. A good dose of nuts, small fruit notes are offset by slight dryness. If you add water to the whisky, the "famous" Knockando creaminess comes to light and mates with the bitterness of oak dust. There are also a few dark berries with unsweetened vanilla.
    • Finish
      Abby lightness is followed by nut notes. A certain dryness is spreading. Not quite ripe blackberries on the back. With water clearly nutty and very dry. Small fruity dots. A spoonful of white pepper.
