anCnoc (pronounced "a-knock") teamed up with Scottish-born menswear designer Patrick Grant, of the prestigious Saville Row tailors, Norton & Sons and E. Tautz to design the bottle for this release. Grant spent time at the distillery in Knockdhu and was inspired by the greenery and charm of the area, which reflects on the colorful spring-like packaging. Blas ("taste" in Gaelic) was matured in 50% re-charred American oak and 50% ex-Oloroso sherry casks.

Tasting Notes

"This mouth-watering whisky has dense flavors of dried figs, prunes, dates and raisins with a richly honeyed sweetness. Toffee, fudge, caramel and pecan coat the palate. Cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, allspice, pine cone and black pepper fold into the mix, which has a warming, somewhat waxy finish. "
