Whisky Focus - anCnoc 22 Year Old

anCnoc 22 Year Old

31st January 2013
New anCnoc 22 year old and anCnoc 16 year makes a welcome return.

anCnoc has announced a new addition to its core range; the anCnoc 22 year old. The new 22 year old is a limited release were the first batch release from the Knockdhu distillery will be limited to just 950 cases worldwide.

The whisky, which has been matured in American bourbon and Spanish sherry oak casks at the Knockdhu distillery in Knock, Banffshire, has been bottled just how we like it, non chill-filtered and with no added  colouring.

Priced at a recommended retail price of 85, and as I already said there will be only 950 cases available throughout 2013 in the UK, USA, Sweden, Russia, Denmark, Japan and Taiwan.

Gillian Gibson, Brand Manager at anCnoc, said:

"Releasing our 22 Years Old marks the first in a series of exciting developments for anCnoc in 2013 which are sure to delight fans of our portfolio of single malts worldwide.

"This particular expression, which was bottled at 46%, has a unique taste profile and we are confident that it will find favour with whisky enthusiasts everywhere."

Bright gold with a copper tint in colour, anCnoc 22 Years Old is full bodied and complex with crushed clove, raisin and blood orange flavours on the palette, the taste is closely followed by layers of fragrant vanilla and leather.

As well as the release of the anCnoc 22 year old, 2013 sees the return of the popular anCnoc 16 year old single malt which was unavailable for the majority of 2012. anCnoc tells me that over 800 cases will be made available this year and will be sent to key customers in the UK, USA and selected export markets, so look out for it appearing again in a whisky specialist shop near you.

Wholly matured in American ex-bourbon oak casks, the 16 year old will have a recommended retail price of 60. Gillian Gibson added:

"anCnoc 16 Years Old was very popular when we first released it in 2008 and we are delighted that global whisky lovers will once again be able to purchase this distinctive expression."
