Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whiskey differently from me.
Near the end of 2017 I took part in series 2 of #BlindTasting set up my Brian of Malt Musings. It’s taken me a while to get around to typing up my tasting notes from then but I’m getting there at last. If you’ve not heard of the #BlindTasting’s then you can get the low-down HERE and you can also find out more detail about Series 2 HERE on Malt Musing’s website.
The second whisky of Series 2 came from John (@jwbassman_) who is not only a whisky enthusiast but also a dab hand with a camera as the above photo will show you! His first blind sample for series 2 was the anCnoc 2000. My full tasting notes are below:
Fruit and sherry straight off the back. Oak and nutty but also sweet – toffee, fudge and icing sugar.
Sweet and fruity – in particular strawberries. Sherry, cardamom and fudge.
Fruit, oak and nutty.
I haven’t found an expression from anCnoc that I haven’t enjoyed and this is no exception. A lovely sweet, fruity dram with some spice and nuttiness to help balance it out. Unfortunately this was a limited edition and most places are now sold out – you can get it on some auction sites and in limited supply on Amazon but it will set you back around £65 – £70 on there which is a little too pricey for me I’m afraid even for such a delicious dram.
