AnCnoc 12 infatuates with its malty-sweet aroma with hints of vanilla. The body contains fruity acidity which flows into a medium-long finish. AnCnoc does not bear the name of the distillery, which is very unusual for a Speyside whiskey. Until 1993, the whiskey was sold under the name of the distillery, then renamed him, as they wanted to avoid confusion with the distillery Knockando. With the AnCnoc, the distillery has achieved a unique quality that is clear and sparkling and does not carry the heavy taste of other Highland malts. You should definitely try this unusual Highland Malt! Jim Murray rewards it with 90/100 points of Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible 2010 The An Cnoc Single Malt is produced in the Knockdhu distillery in Scotland’s Speyside region. Aged for twelve years in fine oak barrels. During this time It developed a quite exceptional flavor. This is gentle, with notes of honey and lemon, but above all this spirit is much finer and lighter than other whiskeys of the region. The flavor is not too sweet, not too tart, but sparkling and clear, with more acidity than the typical malty sweetness. Overall, It is a very balanced, fresh, dry whiskey, which remains dry in the medium-length finish, yet is rounded and pleasant. Connoisseurs it appears perhaps a bit differently, for beginners it is just right. One can enjoy it pure, in the mixed drink It makes good too.
