anCnoc Rascan Single Malt Whisky
70cl, 46% abv
The Rascan tool is used to break up the top level of rough ground and prepare the land for peat harvesting. It clears the heather turf to expose the peat used to produce a whisky, in this case, with a PPM of 11.1. This fine single malt whisky was aged in American ex Bourbon casks for nearly a decade.
Colour: Muted gold in appearance.
Nose: An initial honey sweetness followed by green apples and the accents of oranges and lemons so typical of anCnoc.
Palate: Sweet and spicy notes of vanilla and honey are carried forward at the first sip. Hints of toffee then push through outlined by subtle spices and a smooth leathery undertone.
Finish: Floral yet pleasantly smoky.
