AN CNOC Cutter

Single Malt, Scotland / Highlands 70cl Ref: 18829

This AnCnoc bottling has a phenol content of 20.5 ppm and draws its freshness from the heart of the peat. The peat and smoke transform into anchorage points around which the other elements of the aromatic and gustatory palate can adhere. The result is a feeling of intense harmony between the different stages of tasting, with peat as the central theme.

Profile: woody. Sharp and milky notes due to fermentation. Aromas of peat are omnipresent. Liquorice, oak and green walnuts.

Description

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : very pale yellow.
  • Nose : simultaneously lively and smooth. As well as the milky notes of fermentation, there are also sharp (lemon, grapefruit) notes, and a smooth peaty smokiness. Herbaceous (cut hay), it gradually unfolds into medicinal notes (tiger balm) and spices (black pepper). A fine layer of soot and oak gradually covers the aromatic palate.
  • Palate : fine, fairly vigorous. A lovely sharp attack. Transcends the nose with plenty of freshness and becomes rapidly smoother. The peat develops a liquorice flavour before notes of honey and vanilla fill the mid-palate. With mouth-watering bitterness it develops into notes of liquorice and green walnut.
  • Overall : long, continues along the same lines as the palate. Held together by a lovely firm bitterness, it oscillates between the distillate (fruit spirit) and a discreet woodiness, a sign of maturity. Complex, it lingers on to notes of green grapes, peach and cinnamon. The retro-olfaction is praline and the empty glass powdery (cocoa beans) and roasted (coffee).
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.
