    SMWS note: Honeysuckle and Queen Claudia plums Cask No.

    "We were very impressed by the golden colour of this young
    whisky from a distillery near Huntly in Aberdeenshire whose name in
    Gaelic means dark knoll or black hill. In 1993, the name of the
    proprietary bottling was changed to simply 'the knoll' (in Gaelic, of
    course) to avoid confusion with another well-known malt. It has come
    from a first-fill American hogshead, and the cask has done a mighty job.
    The first nose is of sweet, fresh honeysuckle, with cinnamon ginger
    powder. Water makes it more fruity; hard, tart yellow plums, or those
    Spanish green plums called Queen Claudia and after a while a scent of
    freshly cleaned carpets (soap and damp wool). The flavour at full
    strength is mouth-filling and tingly, with some chilli in the tail;
    water sweetens, freshens and cools it. There are traces of peppermint
    and a return of the ginger in the aftertaste. Frisky with youth, it has
    plenty of zip."
