Knockando 25 yo 1985/2011

Knockando 25 yo 1985/2011

Official bottling 
Single malt - Speyside
Dark red
43% ABV

Nose: Red grapes, red wine, raisins, plums, black pepper, dried cranberries.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, thickens slightly, static.
Tasting: Sweet. Red grapes, raisins, plums, apricots, black pepper, dried cranberries, hints of cucumber.
Finish: Short. Honey, cucumber, raisins, plums, red grapes.


Matured in first fill sherry casks, and it shows. Grapes, fresh and dried and vinous, spiced up with black pepper and perhaps a hint of cucumber. Reminds me - somehow - of a good vermouth, fruity botanical flavours in a gentle red wine sleeve.


I like this a lot.
