A 12 year old from the Knockdhu distillery, released under the Ancnoc name to avoid confusion with the Knockando distillery. This is an expression made with a high proportion of sherry casks, making it a rich, citrusy and full bodied whisky, perfect for the spring and summer months.
An extremely pleasing dram from the small and, as yet, little know Knockdhu distillery. Worth trying and enjoying this gem
Nose: Lots of woody fruits initially- apples, pears, blackberries. Grapefruit rind and blood orange, some ginger.
Palate: Apple juice and ginger. Pears and citrus, waxy grapefruit with some spice. Malt and tobacco smoke. Some vanilla and honey.
Finish: Cinnamon and vanilla on the finish, short but satisfying.
Overall: Excellent simple whisky that showcases the house style well. Straightforward enjoyable scotch that hits the spot.
