AN CNOC Peatheart Batch 2 46%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 58214
Established in 1894, our Distillery Knockdhu, is one of the most enchanting in the Scottish Highlands and belted by a bounty of natural resources perfectly suited to making whisky. Knockdhu sits just under Knock Hill - the home of pure, clear water springs - and sits on the doorstep of a region rich in barley and peat. Peat, a natural resource, was historically embraced as fuel to fire the still and dry the barley for the distillation of whisky. Peat is traditionally cut by hand using several traditional cutting tools. Peatiness can be controlled by the amount of peat burnt and the humidity of the barley. The peat smoke generates phenols, and it is the phenol content that allows a whisky’s ‘peatiness’ to be measured. The phenol content is expressed as PPM (parts per million) and to ensure consistency, Peatheart uses barley, specified by our Master Blender, malted to 40 PPM.

- Appearance : Light golden.
- Nose : Understated peat smoke and barbecue balanced by ripe pineapples, pears and a dark, rich tone of baked toffee apples. Subtle vanilla and sparks of fresh lemon rind lend lightness and elegance to the composition.
- Palate : Structured and full, with rich smoke in balance with juicy gummy bears and the light, fizzy sweetness of spun sugar. Undertones of a hay barn and fudge give it a delicious weight.
- Overall : Long and growing, distinctly spicy and sweet with a warming, smoky finale.
- 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.
