Tasting Notes by Billy A
Fresh apple – both sweet and gently sour – grainy vanilla fudge, freshly crushed malt, cooked sweetcorn and a touch of plasticine. Light fruity notes burst out of the glass when freshly poured, with darker flavours developing over time: candied lemon, pineapple, mango cream and dried tropical fruit trailmix slowly turn into flamed orange peel and raisins. Butterscotch sits behind, with spice and nuttiness growing over time, especially after adding a splash of water.
Sherbert-filled Refresher chews and lemon-zest-sharpness to start, softening to toffee and spiced sponge cake. Dry cinnamon bark and ground cinnamon heat are joined by cracked black pepper and orange zest, with a background of stewed fruit.
Lemon, toffee and gentle spice. Cream and mango develop, making way for nutmeg, cinnamon and a gently dry lingering spice.
A whisky that does wonders with some time in the glass. Starting with the fruity anCnoc character that is shown mostly in the younger expressions, the two years in oloroso casks make themselves known after a few moments, with darker, richer and spicier flavours building but not overpowering.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Oriental spices, toasted vanilla and cocoa beans give way to subtle aromas of lemon grass, orange peel and fragrant cut flowers.
Full-bodied and bold, aromatic spices, fruit loaf and candied lemon are followed by a surge of vanilla, honey and caramel. The finish transforms from peppery and hot to deliciously sweet and smooth.
More from AnCnoc
My go to glass for special occasions. Sampled the range during a distillery tour last year and this was my sweet spot between the 12 and 21 year olds. Sweet, full bodied, warm and very delicately spiced. Personally it's balanced without water for me. Always keen to keep a bottle of this on my shelf.
Complex, fruity and spicy with a lingering finish. Amazing whisky.
Leave it for 15 minutes in the glass, a cracking dram
Finished this now after buying in September. Initially very approachaby sweet and citrussy and friends new to it have really enjoyed it. My favourite element is the spice quite intense and warming like pepper or clove. However over time decided this isn't my favourite - the sweetness is quite sugary and thin and the balance isn't great... gentle brown sugary sweetness quickly kicks into fiery spice without hanging together well and the aftertaste is quite bitter and drying which isn't really my thing.
