Even though I'm not a fan of most top shelf spirits being watered down to 80 proof (more often than not, that's too low for me), this 16 year Knappogue is definitely my favorite of the three I've had so far. It has the same great nose that the 14 has, in fact I don't think I would be able to blindly differentiate between the two. On the palate the sourness that I think is excessive in the 12 and 14 is knocked down a couple levels, which is great. The other flavors I get are toasted nuts, dark chocolate, oak, and a hint of sugary vanilla. A unique, roasted coffee like flavor hangs around on the finish. I really like this whiskey, I just wish it didn't cost $100 for a bottle.
