In the Glass

Appearance

Brilliant, crystal clear.

Aromatics

The nose offers gorgeous scents of honey, butterscotch, toasted grain, roasted almonds, and sweet malt with hints of citrus and smoke.

Flavor

The palate is the natural extension of the aromatics delivering a rich but vibrant malt-driven core with waves of sweet grains, honey, and citrus.

Intensity & Texture

Medium-bodied with generous malt and vibrant citrus and spice notes that give this Whisky perfect balance.

Cool Factor

A

I've long been a fan of the Whiskies made at Knockdhu loving their subtle nature, natural color, and being non-chill filtered to preserve body.

Value Grade

B+

Sub-$50 Whiskies with age statements are getting harder to find so grab up the values like anCnoc while they're still values.

Analysis

anCnoc, formerly known as Knockdhu, has been the preferred name of the Single malt by this old Highland distillery since 1994. They offer a wide range of age-statement and non age-statement Whiskies, as well as vintage range. The style is intentionally lighter and more delicate than the typical Highland malt. This 12 year old is a perfect demonstration of the house style being generous while delicate and understated.

How to Enjoy

Sip neat with a splash of water in a Whisky glass.
