    raspberry lemonade, sugar, so rather sweet indeed.
    red pepper on the tongue, not bad, but not very exciting.

    Enthusiasm 4/5 Whisky n ° 1352
    • Nose
      Milky and light - evoking grain whisky. Plethora of fresh fruits, too mixed up so that I can distinguish them. Airy, he gives late notes of dry grass.
    • Taste
      Very light, fluid. No defect of youth! Some malty notes. Fruity, but not complex.
    • Finish
      On vanilla, basically. Nice and simple.

  3. Rowald Sweet Empire scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Young. Spirity. Yet a lot of sweet things going on. Banana. Peach. Pear. Gummibears. Toffee. Some herbs. Nutmeg. Young but feisty. I like it.

    The distillery is owned by Diagio. An Cnoc means "black hill" in the gaelic. Since 1993 the name for the products of the Knockdhu distillery. The production is 2 million liters per year. A large part disappears in the blending, especially that of J & B.
    Nose: Poached pear and peach, roasted coconut, bacon pie.
    Taste: Full, sweet and dry spices, liquorice, anise, ginger.
    Finish: Nice balance, popcorn, cough syrup and nutmeg.
