anCnoc launches our first ever single cask
Posted on September 21, 2016
We are delighted to announce that we are set to release our first ever single cask bottling to mark 60 years of French whisky specialists La Maison du Whisky.
The exclusive liquid will officially become available at Whisky Live Paris on 24th-26th September to celebrate the role of the country’s largest rare whisky retailer in the evolution of the French market for premium whiskies.
Matured for over 11 years in first-fill American oak ex-bourbon barrel number 427, anCnoc 2005 is rose gold in appearance and has a unique and complex character. On the nose, wood smoke and burned stewed apples with elegant liquorice overtones are underpinned by the distillery’s signature rich vanilla and honey sweetness.
To taste, flavour notes include thick smoke on grated lemon peel and summer fruit salad. Honey and vanilla balance this out, eventually revealing spicy ginger. The finish is a combination of fruit and smoke; powerful and long-lasting.
Bottled at a cask strength of 58% vol, anCnoc 2005 will be available from 24th September exclusively through La Maison du Whisky. RRP 119€ for 70cl.
