anCnoc, the rebranded Knockdhu, is the fruit of the Knockdhu distillery in Speyside. Under the patronage of Inver House, the distillery’s current owner, anCnoc has released two aged expressions—at 12 and 16 years of age—and several vintage expressions as well.

On the nose, anCnoc 12 year-old is creamy, rich, and bright with vanilla, butterscotch, and honey. It is a veritable fruit salad of lemon, orange, fig, and apple, yet with a subtle yeastiness, the combination of which is reminiscent of panettone.

The palate is light and sweet. It is biscuity and zesty, with more fruit notes, especially of cantaloupe, lemon, pear. In all, anCnoc 12 year-old is absolutely charming.
