anCnoc 24 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
70cl, 46% abv
Bottled at a healthy 46% abv, this is a great value buy among older single malts. This bottling is a combination of ex-bourbon cask and sherry-seasoned cask maturation. As a result, it has loads of flavour, but more nuance than you’d likely get from all-sherry maturation. This 24 year old anCnoc single malt whisky from the Highland region Knockdhu Distillery is an expression with citrus prevalent notes. We think anCnoc got this one just right.
Nose: Huge ripe berry basket, sweet and luscious and just wild enough.
Palate: Rich and dense, with wild strawberries, raspberry jam, vanilla custard, and a lovely full mouthfeel.
Finish: Wonderfully long. Along with the fruit come the brambles and branches now. At the end, fragrant black fruit teas and the bottom of a barrel of cherry wine. Very satisfying.
