anCnoc Peter Arkle Casks
anCnoc // Highlands, Scotland
The Peter Arkle Series began in 2012 when anCnoc paired with Scottish-born illustrator Peter Arkle to design labels for limited releases of their whisky. Each label was inspired by the Knockdhu distillery and Peter Arkle visits, with the Casks line a vision of anCnoc’s maturation warehouse. The whisky bares no-age statement and was matured in a mix of American and Spanish oak.
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.
Cask TypeAmerican and Spanish oak
"The whisky opens quite sweet with the normally found resin prevalent in other anCnoc’s quite subtle. Lightly spiced honey follows with grass and fruits coming behind. Vanilla appears at the end of the nosing experience. The palate is fresh with lemon, orchard fruits, and grass accented with citrus zest. A surprising sherbet flavor appears and the whisky's finish ends with citrus zest joined with tart apples. "
