Tasting Notes
Oliver KlimekColour: Mahogany - Nose: Toasted hazelnuts, cherries, clack currant jam, dark chocolate, cinnamon. - Palate: Prunes, dates, blackberries, cherries, dark chocolate, wodd tannins, cinnamon and nutmeg. - Finish: Long, very dry and fruity. - Overall: An unusual Knockando sherry monster from a very active cask. There is lots going on here, but the wood is already too strong to make this a truly great one.
