anCnoc vintage 2000 is here
Posted on September 22, 2014
At last it's here. We are proud to announce the latest addition to our portfolio, the exclusive Vintage 2000. Only 1000 cases of this exceptional single malt will be available in the UK, Sweden, Japan and Russia, to name but a few, from September 2014 with a retail price of £55 per bottle.
The whisky was matured in Spanish oak ex-sherry butts and American oak ex-bourbon barrels at Knockdhu Distillery in Knock, Banffshire, and has been bottled in its most natural form – neither chill-filtered nor coloured at 46% ABV.
The liquid is bronzed honey in colour. The aroma is dark and masculine. Oriental spices, burned vanilla and unrefined cocoa beans give way to subtle aromas of lemongrass, orange peel and fragrant cut flowers. To taste, the new Vintage is smooth but firm-structured, envelops the palate in creamy vanilla, spicy sherry notes and pralines. Lively citrus follows, leading to a long, balanced finish with a whiff of wood smoke.
Staying true to anCnoc style the packaging mirrors the minimalist design of anCnoc’s core range and features the contemporary yet traditional illustration of the Knockdhu Distillery.
