anCnoc 22yr

ancnoc-22

Sampled at Whisky Birmingham 2015 run by The Birmingham Whisky Club this was my first introduction to anCnoc.

Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience. as such you may interpret this whisky very differently from me.

Colour:

Deep gold.

Nose:

Spice – a ginger and cinnamon mix, wood smoke and apples.

Palate:

The mix of spice, smoke and apple follows on from the nose into the palate. Joining the mix is a deliciously creamy toffee flavour.

Finish:

The spice carries on all the way from the nose, to the palate to the finish with cinnamon still coming through strong to the very end.

Overall:

Think sticky toffee pudding with cinnamon and fruit that’s had a good soaking in alcohol. A real treat and one I’ll be looking at getting my hands on again in the future.

 

Notes:

Taken from anCnoc website:

22 YEARS OLD

Matured predominately in American oak, ex-bourbon casks as well as Spanish oak, ex-sherry butts, anCnoc 22 Years Old displays complexity and a wealth of character but its long lasting rich, smoky finish sets this dram apart from the younger offerings.

Colour

Bright gold with a copper tint.

 

Nose

Sweet and spicy with notes of honey and toffee. Warm Christmas cake is accentuated by the freshness of lemons, green apples and cut flowers. All wrapped in a delicate whiff of wood smoke.

 

Taste

Full bodied and complex. Distinct crushed clove, raisin and blood orange flavours are at the front, closely followed by layers of fragrant vanilla and leather. The long, rich finish is smoky and spicy.

 

Alc vol 46%

Available sizes 70cl, 75cl
