About GreatDrams Knockdhu
This Knockdhu 8 Year Old has been matured wholly in one single First Fill Oloroso Hogshead. This has given it not only an excellent colour, but also a big, meaty flavour profile. It's as fruity as it is spicy, as warming as it is smooth and as gorgeous as any sherry cask can be. A special drop from GreatDrams!
The Knockdhu Distillery is a curious juxtaposition of old and new; stainless steel Lauter tuns, wooden washbacks and the use of worm tubs as condensers. Knockdhu, one of the hidden gems of Speyside, was actually shut down between 1983 and 1988 during the last whisky crash, but is now producing again.

How much is shipping?
Shipping charges are calculated during checkout, depending on where you live and how many bottles you’re buying. Shipping within the UK is free on orders over £100.
What about taxes?
All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.
UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.
We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.
For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
Which couriers do you use?
In the UK we use Royal Mail, Parcelforce and APC. US orders are sent via UPS. International orders use FedEx and DHL.
