Knockando 12 Year Old
Also from Knockando Whisky Distillery
Whisky or Whiskey
Insider knowledge: Knockando 12 Year Old whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Knockando 12 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Knockando 12 Bottling Note
A delicate, sweet 12 year old single malt, unchallenging, yet rather charming. It was because of the Knockando distillery that Knockdhu began bottling their whiskies under the name anCnoc - for they deemed their names too similar and wanted to avoid confusion.
The nose is quite gentle and very fragrant. Notes of waxy manuka honey, hints of malty barley and roots with a touch of stemmy cut hay. There is a very supple, chewy peat lying quietly in the background. The palate is quite full with notes of heather roots and damp earth, notes of honeyed sweetness with Jamaica ginger cake, a touch of rum with malty peat. The finish is quite long with winter spice and crystallized stem ginger with cereal notes.

It is very fragrant, but it is a hard hitter. I find it benefits from a from a drop of water.
As for the pronounciation, its 'Nock-an-doh'. Its where I live.

Неплохо, но...может выдержки не хватает. Спирт правит бал.
(Translation using Google Translate: Not bad, but ... maybe speed is not enough. Alcohol reigns.)

Хороший, но не идеально. Евгений из Украины
Я ждал большего,слишком выделяется спирт и портит всю палитру. Пряный - сухофрукты, миндаль,корица, пряности... если бы не спирт... Похож на Караганмо 12, но Венриах 12 - бело-красная этикетка лучше.
(Translation using Google Translate: I expected more, too prominent alcohol and spoils the whole palette. Spicy - dried fruits, almonds, cinnamon, spices ... if not an alcohol ... Looks like Karaganmo 12, but Venriah 12 - white-red label better.)

Well what can I say, a beautiful and truly enjoyable whiskey. Very smooth and goes down far too easilly. Most certainly one I shall purchase again in the future.
Just to note though, with the spelling of the name it should be pronounced "ni-can-doh" and not "no-can-doo"!!
