Knockando 12 Year Old

Floral, Nutty, Hay Like
Knockando 12 is considered the classic entry-level single malt, representative of Speyside, with a fruity, nutty flavour profile.
Knockando mainly produces malts for blends. Nevertheless there are some own bottlings which are traded under the name of the distillery Knockando (Gaelic for: Little Black Hill).

As we would expect from a Speysider: nutty and fruity. We think of apple, pear and honey. A floral scent rounds off the bright, light fragrance.


Tastes like cinema. A very cereal aroma inevitably makes us think of popcorn and canned corn. Some vanilla and oak sneak up behind. This scotch is very delicate.


In the medium-long finish, the single malt becomes a tad bitter, but remains nutty and malty.


A really delicate single malt whisky from Knockando that is suitable for beginners. Overall, rather flat and without real accents. With an age of 12 years, you can certainly find better Speysiders, but we are definitely in the comparatively low price segment for a Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

Rating: 66/100 - Good (Marcel: 65 | Sascha: 67)

Value for Money: 4/5 - Good
