Knockando 18 yo Vintage 1996, 43%

Review #494
Also called ”Slow Matured” and matured in Sherry butts. Light and fruity with hints of dried fruits in the smell. After some minutes in the glass some more sweetness comes forward. Caramel drops in particular.

Dried fruits, oak, caramel and honey sweetness in the taste. Raisins and dates, but in a mild and fresh way. The dried fruits and oak works very well together. It gets a bit sweeter in the finish, and the caramel turns to more burned caramel.

It is a bit fragile, so I wouldn’t recommend too much water (if any), but the low ABV actually suits this whisky! Just a good all-rounder, with a bit sweet finish. This goes great with a cup of coffee or vanilla ice cream dessert. I will give this 84/100 (21/21/21/21).
