A single malt from the Knockando distillery in Speyside. Gaelic for "Little Black Hill", less than 10% of Knockando production is kept for single malt with the remainder forming a key component of the J&B blend. Matured for a minimum of 12 years before being bottled at 43%.
Nose: Fruity-floral at first - flowering currant, a hint of blackcurrant - with some ash or char in the background (scorched brown toast?) and after a while a trace of damp linen.
Palate: Light mouthfeel, pleasantly sweet, central palate, drying lightly, with a trace of acidity.
Finish: Relatively short. Clean and easy to drink.
