Knockando 15 years old, was bottled with 43% ABV and distilled in 1995. According to the producer it was aged in sherry and refill Bourbon casks. The distillery proclaims that this single malt was “Richly Matured” I do not know what that means … maybe it is this combination of casks, or maybe it’s just a marketing gimmick.

Whisky classic and worth a try, but I have not seen too many bottles on the shop shelves. I brought mine some time ago from France.
