Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré.
  • Nose : fin, malté. Les agrumes (citron, pamplemousse) apportent du rythme. Des épices (girofle, cannelle) enfoncent le clou. Evolue sur les fleurs blanches (lys, muguet). L'orge maltée prend l'ascendant au fur et à mesure.
  • Palate : ferme, dense. Sa vivacité est minérale (ardoise) et ses fruits sont acidulés. Le miel d'acacia apporte de la douceur. Des notes de sous-bois (champignons, lichen) tapissent ensuite le palais. Elle se prolonge sur la douceur de l'orge maltée.
  • Overall : longue, tendre. La cardamome et la cannelle lui procurent beaucoup de piment. Elle s'étire sur le lait de coco et la vanille-bourbon. La rétro-olfaction est réglissée et herbacée (foin coupé).
The brand

The brand

This distillery uses a variety of casks - butts and hogsheads in Spanish oak and barrels and hogsheads in American oak - to produce a light, but complex, whisky. Both modern and classic, An Cnoc’s official bottling stands out on the one hand for its extremely distinctive packaging - see the Peter Arckle vintages, the labels and tubes of which have been created by the artist of the same name - and on the other hand for the alcohol content which is often higher than average, as well as for its numerous dated vintages. A forward-thinking whisky with deep respect for tradition!

The distillery

Built on the Knock estate in 1892, following the discovery of several sources of very pure, fresh water springs, the Knockdhu distillery continues to produce a single malt from the two original stills. In 2000, the owners of the distillery decided to change the name of their whisky, in order to avoid any confusion with another distillery in the same area, Knockando. The distillery uses a variety of casks – Spanish oak butts and hogsheads, and American oak barrels and hogsheads – to produce a light, but complex style of whisky.
