In each bottle you will only ever find the produce of one single Season – a practice which continues to distinguish Knockando from almost all other single malts.
Especially delicate, fruity and subtle Speyside:smooth but complex layers of flowery, nutty and slightly smoky notes.
Only natural ingredients are used - malted barley, yeast and crystal clear spring water from the Cardnach spring, which lies in the hills above the distillery. And the quantity of peat used in malting the barley is carefully controlled so as not to overbalance the taste of the final product, and the proportion of sherry casks used is restricted so as to not dominate the taste of the whisky.
Time is another key element, as gentle maturation in oak casks slowly reveal the subtle aromas: delicate with a distinctive fresh almond note in its younger versions, it gains weight and depth of flavour over the years.
The final result is a subtle, fruity single malt which bears all the hallmarks of the finest Speyside malts.
APPEARANCE Pale amber.
NOSE Fruity-floral with a hint of blackcurrant. Some ash, then a trace of damp linen. Water brings up cereal notes and meaty aromas. Develops towards scorched paper.
PALATE Light mouthfeel, pleasantly sweet, central palate. Drying lightly with a trace of acidity.
FINISH Relatively short. Clean and easy to drink.
