Knockando 18 Years Old Slow Matured 70cl 43°

Distillery : Knockando / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 20717

The Knockando distillery is renowned for its know-how regarding cask maturation and vintage bottlings. Its Single Malts possess the elegance of their land of origin, Speyside, and their unique fruity and subtlety really stand out. They are part of the Classic Malts Selection.

This 18 Year-Old Speyside malt is a version exclusively reserved to the French market, with a thorough, carefully monitored ageing. Innes Shaw, Knocknando Master Distiller since 1974, has been particularly careful with the maturation, the origin and size of the casks, to reveal the whisky's character with its subtle woody notes, reminiscent of dried fruits and sweet spices.

The Classic Malt Selection offers an amazing journey around Scotland, to discover the main malt whisky-producing regions. Each one of them expresses the genuine character of its land of origin, through unique aromas and temper. For each Single Malt, spring water, soil and time work their magic to bottle the very essence of a land.

Founded in 1898 by John Thompson, the Knockando distillery sits on the Spey banks, the river from which Speyside takes its name.

This region of Scotland is known for its refined malt whiskies. The distillery’s name derives from Gaelic “Cnoc an Dhu”, translating as “small black mountain” in English. The Knockando’s tradition is to bottle whisky from a single vintage, or “season”. This harks back to the time when distillation was a seasonal activity, only done in autumn and winter months. Today, Knockando is distilled all year-round, but is still bottled “one season at a time” and each bottle proudly bears its year of distillation. The unique character of Knockando ranks the distillery in the Classic Malts Selection. Created more than 20 years ago, this selection recognises Single Malts crafted in the tradition of iconic distilleries, and offers the most impressive whisky styles Scotland has to offer.

Colour: amber.

Nose: fruity and woody, with notes of almond and vanilla.

Palate: deeply fruity and sherried, overlayed with notes of dried fruits (apricots, grapes), and chocolate, almond and hazelnut flavours.

Finish: long, silky, with oaky toffee notes.

Best paired with finely sliced Jamón Serrano or sprinkles of parmesan. Foie gras is also a perfect partner, that highlights the roundness and intensity of Knockando.
