european exclusive 'anCnoc Peatlands' is launched
Posted on August 07, 2015
We're delighted to announce that a brand new regional exclusive has been added to our Peaty Collection – the dark but delicate Peatlands.
This limited edition Scotch whisky will launch exclusively in Scandinavia, Western and Eastern Europe from 7th August 2015 with just 6,600 bottles available to purchase.
Peatlands joins Tushkar, Rutter, Flaughter and Cutter in the award-winning collection, carrying the name of traditional peat cutting tools, bringing them into the spotlight as the unsung heroes. Like its sister expressions, it retains the signature dark smokiness but with a phenol content of 9PPM, Peatlands has a delicate and more gentle finish.
Flavour notes of the liquid, which is iridescent amber in colour, begin with sweet citrus, underpinned by spicy cloves and nutmeg on the nose. To taste, the Peatlands offers sticky and creamy toffee richness, embodied by a lasting wave of a warm and woody smokiness.
Matured for more than 10 years in American oak ex-bourbon barrels in the traditional dunnage warehouses at the enchanting Knockdhu distillery, Peatlands continues our mission to reinvigorate and bring a modern take to the world of peated whisky. This expression has been produced from the crystal clear highland spring water which runs through Knock Hill and forms the heart of every anCnoc distillate.
