Releasing a Vintage expression has become an anCnoc tradition. The Vintage 2001 is a fitting testimony to the time-honoured methods employed in production of this traditional yet distinctly modern single malt.
anCnoc Vintage 2001 has matured in Spanish and American oak casks and has been bottled in its most natural form neither chill-filtered nor coloured and as a result this dram may develop a light haze with the addition of water or if kept at a cold temperature. This haze is a natural characteristic of whisky that is non chill-filtered.
COLOUR: Vintage gold.
NOSE: Brimming with freshly squeezed lemons and ripe blood oranges. Creamy vanilla, ground spices and a touch of new leather follow.
TASTE: A hint of set lime honey, vanilla and a distinct chocolate presence. The finish drifts off slowly with a zesty freshness.
