Tasting notes from Jim Murray's 2012 Whisky Bible:
Nose: I think my staff have poured me the wrong stuff: theyhave opened up some pot still Demerara, right ...? Wrong. No definitely from the Knockando sample. Well, Well, Well, let`s just say it is a fruity, sugary, rich start on the nose.
Key: Actually, I don`t care if this is rum or whisky. When you get this beautifully defined flavors, this is a body sublimely structure ... it really does not much matter. Oozes fruity, beautifully natural sweetened quality and complexity.
Finish: A slight bitterness on the finish where, for the first time, there is a minor blemish, but the array of sugars quiet make for something memorable ... and absolutely 100% nothing like I have tasted from any previous Knockando.
Balance: I have been in the Demerara region of Guyana, crawled around a rum warehouse at a rum distillery and opened a cask of rum Which has less rum characteristics than this rumbustuous chappie. Quite a rum DO.
