Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: The Alistair Walker Whisky Company 70cl / 58.9%
You don't see too many indie bottles of Knockdhu, the distillery whose official bottlings appear as An Cnoc. This is a shame as it's a great whisky, as amply evidenced by this 2013 Knockdhu 8-year-old by Infrequent Flyers.
This 8-year-old Knockdhu 2013 came from a first fill bourbon barrel, which yielded just 210 bottles at 58.9% and is the only bottling in this late 2021 outturn from Alistair Walker that hasn't been finished in a wine or virgin oak cask. This will be a cracker.
