Produced at the Knockdhu Distillery in the Highlands, this latest launch follows on from the original Peatheart release in 2017.

anCnoc Peatheart Batch 2, is said to deliver notes of peat smoke, barbecue, ripe pineapples, pears, baked toffee apples, vanilla and fresh lemon rind on the nose, followed by notes of rich smoke, juicy gummy bears, spun sugar, hay and fudge on the palate.

Commenting on the launch, Gordon Bruce, Knockdhu Distillery Manager, said: “Despite having the same ppm as Batch 1, slight variations in maturation mean that our second Peatheart bottling offers something a little bit different, with a more refined smoky character. The combination of fresh, fruity anCnoc notes with these more mellow peat flavours creates a wonderful modern whisky that will be enjoyed by whisky fans across the spectrum. The peaty range now sits alongside our signature anCnoc whiskies to give drinkers two very distinctive sides to our whisky. Whether it’s a dram from our ‘dark’ or ‘light’ side, both represent our commitment to using the best traditional techniques and craftsmanship to make a very modern single malt whisky.”

anCnoc Peatheart Batch 2, will be available from October 1st, from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £52.00.
