Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    Nose: Chocolate covered cherries and toasted orange peel, with tobacco leaves and fruit, topical and orchard, creeping out from behind: pineapple, apple, pear, orange and sharp mango. There's wax polish, dry leaves and soft spice – nutmeg and hint of cardamom – as well as some vanilla, sappy touches and a bit of Jaffa Cake jelly.

    Palate: Barrel char and layers of spice dominate at first, with an old spirit rancio character developing behind. Damp leaves, forests after a rainstorm and leafy ponds sit on top of more traditional anCnoc fruitiness, with apples, sour cherries and lemon slowly making their way forward. The richer notes balance things out, with sweetened espresso (maybe a macchiato), toffee and chocolate Rice Krispie cakes joined by a hint of mint.

    Finish: Lingering sandalwood and incense, thickly peeled apple skin, apple boiled sweets, green leaves and damp earth. It calms to a gently earthy note, with candied sweetness and lingering hint of Polo mint.

    Comment: This whisky tastes old, but with the damp and dark flavours from old oak providing a solid base. However, the anCnoc spirit will not be kept down, and fruitier notes poke their head above the parapet to provide a counterpoint and occasional flash of freshness.

  • Producer's Notes

    Colour: Dark bronze with mahogany highlights.

    Nose: Waves of spicy dried fruit and creamy vanilla sweetness are accentuated by orange peel, green apple freshness and just a hint of cut flowers.

    Taste: Full-bodied, intense and complex. Fruit cake, sticky toffee and seasoned leather are followed by signature notes of honey and lemons, leading eventually to a long, mouth-watering finish full of spice and sweetness.
