anCnoc 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Over a century after its original founding, little has changed at the distillery. anCnoc Single Malt Scotch Whisky (anCnoc is one of the few whiskies not named after the distillery that produces it) is made from fresh, plump barley, much of it still harvested from the fields that surround the distillery. Once the grains have been harvested, they are malted and mashed before being fermented in one of the distillery's six original wooden washbacks.
Following fermentation, the wash is distilled twice through Knockdhu's century-old, copper-pot stills. The stills have unusually flat bases as compared to stills at other Scottish distilleries, which forces the alcohol vapors to travel up the long, narrow neck of the still and results in a lighter and more fruity whisky. In addition, the stills are equipped with worm tubs — large tanks of cold water that are used to condense the alcohol vapor back into a liquid spirit. These worm tubs — most distilleries abandoned worm tubs for condensing units long ago — are a testament to Knockdhu's commitment to producing a traditional style of malt whisky.
Following distillation, anCnoc 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is aged in hand-selected, American oak casks that are quietly laid to rest in the distillery's dunnage warehouse. The dunnage warehouse's thick granite walls and unique location results in stable temperatures, and allows the whisky to develop consistently. After a dozen years of maturation in the dunnage warehouse, the whisky is bottled. anCnoc 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky has a golden straw color, along with an aroma of honey and lemon. The aroma gives way to notes of citrus, tart pears, caramel apples and orange zest on the palate, and leads to a soft and smooth finish.
anCnoc 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky earned a score of 92 points from the Beverage Testing Institute in 2017. In addition, it earned the Silver Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2013.
