Sampled at Whisky Birmingham 2015 run by The Birmingham Whisky Club this was my second anCnoc and certainly a transition from the 22yr.
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.
Pale white wine
Think smoke and ash with a hint of something underneath – Toffee? Vanilla?
An even stronger flavour of ash than the nose gives but with a hint of un-ripened apple and a dash of citrus – Orange? A thick almost creamy quality to it.
A long smokey finish to this one, peaty to the end.
A stark contrast to the 22yr but another excellent dram. Always a pleasure to find out about a distillery for the first time and straight away be introduced to a range of delights after just sampling two of their whiskies on offer.
