anCnoc's latest vintage, which is limited to 1200 cases, joins the family of single malts produced at the Knockdhu distillery in Aberdeenshire, and follows in the footsteps of the highly successful 2001 Vintage, which was released in 2016. 

anCnoc 2002 Vintage, is said to be bright amber in appearance and bursting with aromas of spicy Christmas cake, liquorice and toffee, closely followed by a spiced vanilla aroma and a citrusy finish. On the palate, there is said to be sweetness of chocolate, perfectly contrasted with orange zest and a hint of leather, leaving drinkers with a long warming finish.

Commenting on the launch, Stephanie Allison, anCnoc Brand Manager, said: “We’re really excited to release the 2002 vintage to anCnoc fans as it creates the perfect balance between the signature Knockdhu house style we’re so proud of whilst introducing new tastes into our portfolio. With the combined spicy notes and sweet flavours, we’re sure this spirit will satisfy even the most discerning whisky drinker looking to extend their collections.”
