AN CNOC The Peatlands

Single Malt, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 19647

Founded in 1984, Knockdhu distillery originally produced a peaty Speyside malt. Closed in 1983, it was then bought by Inverhouse, who re-launched production in February 1989 and renamed the dis - tillery anCnoc in 1993. More smoky than peaty, this version is also extremely malty and herbaceous. The bouquet garni of aromatic herbs on the finish is a moment of pure tasting pleasure.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : vibrant golden yellow
  • Nose : Heady, firm. Smoke takes an authoritative hold on the aromatic palette. It is surrounded by its loyal bodyguards, of spice, liquorice (pepper, clove), tiger balm and camphor. Allowed to breath, its fruity and herbaceous character becomes gradually more pronounced (melon, pear, plum, courgette, cucumber).
  • Palate : Both taut and creamy. With a wonderfully pleasant, herbaceous bitterness (cut hay, artichoke heart), the attack is particularly smoky and ashy. The midpalate oscillates between notes of vanilla, cocoa beans, spices (curry) and green walnut. The malted barley shines increasingly brightly as the tasting progresses.
  • Overall : Long, soft. The finish offers a multitude of aromatic herbs (sage, tarragon, rosemary, bay leaf, etc.). Smoke leads into malted barley. Spices (star anise, turmeric) follow in its footsteps in a striding finish. The grand finale presents notes of exotic fruit (pineapple) and saffron. Retro-nasal olfaction is vanilla-like and mineral (chalk, candied liquorice). The empty glass is unctuously malty and vegetal (artichoke hear
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.
