Check out our deal on these two Highland Single Malts!
You gotta love it when people bring the deals to you... Just before Christmas it was the Mackinlay's Shackleton (only 10 left), and now it is a pair of anCnocs, from the Knockdhu Distillery.
We were given a $10 break on the anCnoc 2000 and close to $40 on the anCnoc 22 Year to help clear out the Alberta inventory. Both are great whiskies, and now discontinued.
anCnoc is the name that was given to Knockdhu distillery's single malt so that it wouldn't be confused with another distillery, Knockando. The Knockdhu distillery is located in the shadow of the Knock Hill, known to locals by its Scots Gaelic name anCnoc. Bottled at 46%, the 22 year old expression first released in early 2013 was matured in a mix of Ex-Bourbon and Ex-Sherry casks; judging by the colour, which I have to believe is natural, there must be a high proportion of the latter.
Andrew's Tasting Notes
Nose: soft damp tobacco in an old leather patch, chocolate shavings on a piping cappuccino; some candied fruits, lemon drops and wine gums; some delicate malty-floral top notes emerge with some soft toasty oak.
Palate: rich, fruity and very soft, wow this is really something; lots of chocolate with more soft leather and tobacco; more candied fruit and wine gums with some emerging mango, papaya and honey dew melon.
Finish: an absolutely beautiful balance of both sherry and bourbon notes, the finish is long rich and spicy; finishes fruity and floral.
Comment: I'm really caught off guard by this, wow it's good!
