AN CNOC 2005 Peated – 60th Anniversary LMDW 58%
Single Malt, Scotland / Highlands 70cl Ref: 51507
Though the distillery has kept its original name of Knockdhu, the single malt it produces was renamed An Cnoc in 1993. Distilled from peated barley, this 2005 bottling wonderfully illustrates the powerful and firm style of this uncompromising Speyside that never rests on its laurels. Without being austere, this version is focused on its favourite subject, malted barley, dressing it in medicinal, earthy, spicy – almost hot – and even fruity nuances.
Profile: malty and earthy, the nose becomes fruity (apple), spicy (black pepper) and lemony. The palate is fruity with notes of honey and vanilla. White fruit. The earthiness gradually becomes peaty at the end of the palate. It becomes delicately mentholated.
