    • Nose

      Starts neatly. Walnut liqueur, nut oil, dried apricot, gingerbread dough, raspberries covered in dark chocolate, forest honey and almond-colored sherry.
    • Taste
      79 79
      First, a lot of sherry, accompanied by nuts and gingerbread. Becomes surprisingly berry after raspberries and currants and ends with an aromatic fruit tea.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Long, dry, sherry-toned and delicately scented with red berries.

  6. schengel10 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A beautiful, uncomplicated 18-year-old Knocki. In comparison to the 1994er but much less intensity in the taste!
    • Nose
      dark dry fruits (raisins, berries) in the foreground, dry, prominent oak;
    • Taste
      easy onset, spicy, dry, fruity, almonds, nuts, sweetness;
    • Finish
      medium long finish, long very spicy finish;

  7. wisekycourse scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, wood, spice, not peppery spices and a smell of tobacco
    On the palate, pepper, caramel and oloroso sherry
    In the final, the predominant spice and sherry on a short final

    at the price, often decried, it ensures, no more!

  8. Bidule scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    On the nose, not much except sherry.
    In the mouth: round and warm, pleasant.
    A nice Whisky. At this price, I say yes

  9. Tauti scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    great late evening dram.
