KNOCKANDO 1971 SCOTCH
A rare find, a fine Single Malt Scotch aged 11 years - season 1971 and bottled 1982. In Gaelic Knockando means little black hill. Time is a key element as gentle maturation in oak casks slowly reveal the subtle aromas: delicate with a distinctive fresh almond note in it's younger versions. It gains weight and depth of flavor over the years. The final result is a subtle, fruity single malt which bears all the hallmarks of the finest Speyside malts. As the color is derived from oak wood and each butt or hogshead has its own individual characteristics, the depth of color may vary, but the distinctive mellow richness remains constant - the unmistakable signature of Knockando from Scotland.
