Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Domain and appellation
Founded by John Thompson in 1898, Knockando, which means "little black hill" in Gaelic, is different from other distilleries only with malts from a single vintage, and bottled at their peak.
- Distillery: The Knockando distillery is located in the Speyside region in Scotland.
- Manufacturing: The Knockando distillery uses conical shaped stills (classic pot still) for the first distillation and a ball compartment (boiling ball) for the second distillation. This Master Reserve comes from the assembly of several sherry casks.
