Produced at the Knockdhu Distillery, this whisky is actually named after nearby Knock Hill, which the locals call anCnoc, (Gaelic for Black Hill). Another reason for the name might have been to make sure there is no confusion with another distillery called Knockando. Got it? Good. This Highland whisky is aged in both previously used American and Spanish oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

"For a 12 year old whisky, there is a fair amount of complexity here. Whipped cream and heaps of citrus fruits are discovered initially that then turn to a bowl of cereal with dried red fruit on top. It finishes up with dashes of cinnamon and salt. The weight of the whisky is pleasantly plump. All in all, a nice treat to enjoy when you've got a craving for something sweet."
