The Latest Master’s Cask On Sale – The Perfect Gift!

Tuesday, 1 August 2017 - Livery News

From the heart of the Spey Valley, this Knockando Single Malt is at its peak of 18YO maturity, a truly satisfying, warm and smooth single malt; first impressions are of deep rich fruit on the nose with citrus fruit and vanilla fudge.

On the palate it opens sweetly with almonds and hints of sherry then moves to light oak with fresh bread notes, and is absolutely delicious. Straight from a single barrel, this expression was bottled at cask strength to celebrate the first forty years of Knockando as a Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

100 bottles of this very rare, unique and highly collectable malt whisky are being made available to Liverymen and Past Masters, and given its special provenance it will be in great demand, so we urge you to move fast to secure this important part of Distillers’ history.

I thank my friends at Diageo most sincerely for donating this cask and to Morrison & MacKay for bottling it for us.
All proceeds will go to our charity fund.
