AnCnoc 12 Year Old

Mellow, Sweet Fruity
The Highland malt AnCnoc is produced by the Knockdhu distillery. Supposedly they do not bottle under their own name to avoid confusion with Knockando. Today we have the 12 year old and youngest bottling of the core range in the glass.

The nose is pleasantly malty with a good dose of grain. There are also fruity notes of banana and pear, rounded off by a fine vanilla. Behind this is we find some cinnamon spice.


The malt is full-bodied and pleasantly oily. The intense malt aroma lingers. We also think of dried banana chips. A beautifully integrated oak combines with nutty almond notes. On the palate we taste cinnamon and a slightly tangy acidity.


The finish is medium long and fruity. The pleasant oak on the palate develops into a discreet spiciness.


AnCnoc 12 is a safe, full-bodied single malt that you can always put on the table. The classic profile offers a pleasurable experience for both beginners and connoisseurs. Without aromatic flaws, it is always an unreserved recommendation.

Rating: 80/100 - Excellent (Marcel: 81 | Sascha: 78)

Value for Money: 5/5 - Very Good
