Knockando Distillery was built in 1898, and is named after the village in which it stands. The name derives from Scottish Gaelic Cnoc an Dhu, meaning "Little Black Hill".
I do enjoy finding out a bit about the distilleries and like that they each have some quirky fact that makes them unique. In the case of Knockando it is that they were the first distillery in Scotland to be built with electric lighting.
Anyway, enough of this, lets open the bottle.
It has a light colour like Golden straw.
The nose is a citrus bouquet, fresh hay, lemon grass and sweet apples
The first sip feels light and sweet. Honey with citrus. A peat undertone and burst of light fruits.
The finish tingles on the tongue with warm spice and a sweet rolling glow. Medium long.
This is a very pleasant summer drink which I will thoroughly enjoy. I can't see it lasting too long and was worth waiting to try.
