This lip-smacking 12yo AnCnoc (formerly Knockdhu) is a top-quality proponent of the non-sherried Speyside style, showing polished malt and a delicious spiciness throughout a warm, complex palate and lasting finish.
Smooth; floral; easy on the palate - but with lasting character.

This is very well made. One word, Quality. If its to your taste it will be a favorite, ( How can it not be to your taste.)Just a drop of water brings it all out.

I have only been serious about tasting/drinking whisky for the last couple of years and just got around to trying this. I haven't had anything quite like it before and must say I'm very impressed. Light, clean, fresh and delicate yet still complex and intriguing. I like to keep a wide variety of bottles open in different styles and will permanently keep a bottle of this on the go for when the mood calls. I recommend you do the same!

This is really elegant, fresh and complex all at once! Just shows that there is plenty of room in Speyside for everything from sherryfreaks to...well, this, for example. A real stunner and a great, great value. This is admirable intrinsic quality and poise; just wish they had the extra guts to do away with the caramel and the chill filtration...

This is an excellent malt, lovely complex flavour and a nice long finish. I've tried loads of highland and speyside malts this is up there with the best of them, recommended :-)
