anCnoc (pronounced ah-nock) is a Highlands based distillery that for the past few decades has been known for it's unpeated Scotch. However, they have a produced a limited edition range of whisky made with peated barley, a throwback to the days in the late 19th century when the distillery made only peated whiskies. Cutter is named for the hand tool used to cut the peat away from the bogs. This whiskey is released with a phenol count of 20.5 ppm.

Tasting Notes

"Though it's made in the Highlands, you'd swear this was Islay - not only because of its intense peatiness - but also for its heavy saline and seabrine flavors and its oily, viscous texture. There's a fair amount of dark chocolate, espresso and orchard fruits lying beneath the surface and faint warm spice in the finish. Peat fans will definitely rejoice with this one!"
