anCnoc Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky has announced the release of its eagerly awaited 18 year old expression. With only 1000 cases available worldwide, this very special single malt from Knockdhu Distillery will join the brand’s award winning portfolio, which celebrates the traditional art of whisky making with a modern twist.
Matured in hand selected Spanish oak ex-sherrycasks and American oak ex-bourbon casks, each 700ml bottle will retail at £70 with an ABV of 46%. On the palate, the non chill-filtered single malt is bursting with oriental spices and toasted vanilla, with a full bodied taste and a surge of honey and caramel to finish.
The packaging stays true to anCnoc’s trademark minimalistic style, featuring an artful depiction of the landscape surrounding Knockdhu.
Colour: Bronzed amber.
Nose: Gentle spices and intense sweetness of dried fruits are topped with chocolate, ripe oranges and oiled leather.
Taste: Full-bodied and bold, aromatic spices, fruit loaf and candied lemon are followed by a surge of vanilla, honey and caramel. The finish transforms from peppery and hot to deliciously sweet and smooth.
