- Nose : densely sweet and fruity with notes of lemon and candied orange peel. Tones of bitter chocolate and vanilla add complexity and weight.
- Palate : full-bodied and oily. The initial burst of lemon tart is followed by notes of rum raisins and dark chocolate. A hint of freshly cut grass adds freshness and balance.
- Overall : long and satisfying with a bitter-sweet cocoa aftertaste.
- 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!
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.
