anCnoc 16 yo (46%, OB 2010)
Nose: malty and fruity, quite aromatic in a way that reminds me more of fruit tea rather than the actual fruits. Maybe that’s also because of the distinct camomile notes. Citrus, peach, pear, strawberry. Some vanilla and toffee, as well as light grassy elements. Nice.
Mouth: again a particularly tea-like flavour palette (due to the herbal / grassy notes maybe), with dashes of honey and glazed apples. Zesty citrus. Oak shavings with some tannins. A bit light in comparison with the nose maybe.
Finish: medium length, with sweet cereals, some mint and vanilla.
This anCnoc 16 Years old is aromatic with young fruits and freshly cut oak. More of a summer whisky, I think.
