This is precision of place, one location captured in Spirit. Knockroe 1.1 is the second exclusive release for the South African market, matured in the following casks; 34% First Fill U.S., 20% Virgin U.S., 23% Premium French & 23% Vin Doux Naturel.
Nose: Honey-drenched barley, freshly cut lucerne hay, the sweet organic notes so dominant in this expression. Sugarcane, warm flapjacks drizzled with golden syrup, butterscotch, uncooked fruit cake mix, melted butter on a honeyed crumpet.
Palate: Viscous barley sugar, with lemon tang and salted fresh ginger root washing over the tongue, then cracked black pepper and gorgeous caramelised muscovado sugar on the finish with a curious sweet sardine note lingering on the aftertaste.
