The anCnoc 24 is made at the knockdhu distillery and is a combination of ex-bourbon casks and sherry-treated casks thats not chill-filtered nor coloured. An underrated heaveyweight.
Nose a bouquet of fragrant custard dripped with vanilla pods, black tea,orange bitters in your margarita and grated ginger.
In the mouth a wonderfully dense and slightly oily resin, creamed honey comb. Imagine winnie the pooh hand drenched with honey, candied Seville oranges. I get a very faint and subtle note of dried figs from my mom’s fig tree. More bourbon than sherry. These layers are balanced by delicate oak spices, ginger, rooibos, and cleaned Florentine leather with a faint hint of earthy tobacco leaf like I get from the cafe Cubano Nespresso. longish finish that’s dangerously tasty.
For a 24 yo highland whisky sub $150 this is a charming gem that’s crazy value for the money!
89 maybe a point higher becaude at $140 its 3-4 times less than its class!
