The Highlands based anCnoc Scotch whisky brand, has announced the launch of the latest expression from its vintages collection.

This latest limited-edition, which showcases the heritage and skill of Knockdhu’s (the home of anCnoc) small distillery team, is said to deliver notes of spice, wood, honey and citrus notes on the nose. Followed by notes of rich spice, sweet green apple, dark chocolate and butterscotch on the palate.

Commenting on the news, Gordon Bruce, Knockdhu Distillery Manager, said: “We’ve been waiting twelve years for this vintage and it has definitely been worth the wait. This is a dram that has all the light, fresh qualities of anCnoc that are so loved by our drinkers, but there’s also a rich spiciness and complexity from its time in the casks.”

Gordon went onto say: “It’s always a joy to release a new whisky out into the world. I’m particularly proud that the character of this new vintage captures the way we do things at Knockdhu, and the traditions we hold dear, yet it still tastes like a very modern single malt. anCnoc 2009 Vintage will be a real treat for whisky drinkers looking for something a little bit different to explore, or as a special addition to the Christmas list of anyone who appreciates a well-crafted single malt.”

anCnoc 2009 Vintage, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £50.00.
