Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : or vif à reflets légèrement ambrés.
  • Nose : puissant, corsé. Taillé dans le roc, il est marqué par les zestes d’agrumes (pamplemousse, orange), la concrète d’iris et le poivre noir. Capiteux à souhait, il évolue sur la résine de pin et la vanille-bourbon. Au fur et à mesure, l’orange se fait plus juteuse.
  • Palate : suave, ronde. Beaucoup plus fruitée que le nez, elle affirme d’emblée son caractère Speyside fait de notes herbacées (malt vert), de noix, de mirabelle et de fleurs (lavande, lilas). Elle évolue sur la réglisse et la terre humide, évoquant presque la tourbe grasse.
  • Overall : riche, capiteux. Le genêt, le girofle, le cuir et le chocolat noir entérinent ses penchants à la rusticité. La noix de coco, le miel de lavande et la noix fraîche nous renvoient aux abords de la colline noire près de laquelle est située la distillerie. La rétro olfaction est duveteuse et le verre vide abricoté et floral (lilas).
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.
