Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Malt bin, lime and orange, passion fruit, coffee ice cream becoming hugely, almost alarmingly creamy: fudge, butter.
Palate: Creaminess seems to hide. Direct and nutty with a crisp centre. Pigskin leather. Dry and malty.
Finish: Dusty.
Comment: The first clotted cream finish? Amazing freshness for this age. A great cask – quick use it again!
7.8
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Gentle. Peardrops, butterscotch, a hint of lemon.
Palate: Initial apples and sherbet, hard toffee. Some woody notes ultimately predominate.
Finish: Quite short, more toffee, oak.
Comment: Knockando is always a well-mannered whisky, although this expression seems a tad tired.
