anCnoc 2002 Vintage Review

12th May 2017
Review of the recently released anCnoc 2002 Vintage.

anCnoc 2002 Vintage ReviewanCnoc single malt whisky which is produced at the Knockdhu distillery in Speyside has just launched its latest whisky in its popular Vintage series of single malts, the anCnoc 2002 Vintage.

The anCnoc 2002 Vintage was bottled in March 2017 making it around 15 years old for those of you who like to put an age on a whisky. It was matured in a combination of Spanish and American oak casks in traditional dunnage warehouses then bottled at 46% ABV with no added colour and no chill-filtering.

A limited release of 1200 cases globally, including the UK, US, Canada, Sweden and Japan, it has an RRP of 65

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: A fantastic anCnoc nose, delicious honey and orange citrus, a touch of sweet vanilla and spice when you dig deeper.

Taste: Creamy toffee and zesty Satsuma coats the palate, quickly joined by some spice and a touch of liquorice.

Finish: Long, the toffee and Satsuma mellow leaving the oak and spice to take the final curtain.

Comment: Another outstanding anCnoc vintage release, citrus, spice and all things nice. You could happily nose this all night and the palate confirms the nose. Another quality easy drinking anCnoc vintage and a cracking dram for a warm summers evening.

SMW Score 91/100

You will find the anCnoc 2002 as well as the current anCnoc whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as Master of Malt
