anCnoc Rùdhan wins gold

Rùdhan


We are pleased to announce Global Travel Retail exclusive Rùdhan as a gold winner at The Spirits Business Global Travel Retail Spirits Masters 2017, less than a year after it launched.

Rùdhan, the latest limited-edition travel retail expression to join our much acclaimed Peaty collection, was described as ‘young and vibrant’ by the judges and was one of six whiskies awarded gold in the category.

Bringing together dark peaty smokiness and light subtle flavour, the elegant dram takes its name from the peat harvesting process. The term ‘rùdhan’ [roo-an] refers to the final stage, in which the peat is stacked for several weeks to dry out ahead of burning to create the signature smokiness associated with the range.

Measuring 46% ABV and pale straw in appearance, the initial fruity aromas give way to the strong scent of woody smokiness. To taste, the famous earthy peat flavour is followed by warming spices and burnt sugar, ending with a long and smooth finish.
