anCnoc 24 Year
anCnoc // Highlands, Scotland
anCnoc (pronounced "a-knock") are produced at Knockdhu distillery in the village of Knock in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. This 24 year old Scotch was aged in a combination of ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks. It is non-chill filtered with no added coloring.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"This distillery tends to release whiskies that are dense and creamy, and this rather mature dram is of course no exception. The sherry cask adds just the right touch of cashew and marmalade to classic toffee, caramel and vanilla. Warm spices ride it out into the finish, which is somewhat drying, but still satisfying. For a whisky of this maturity and depth, that price is a total steal."
