Whiskey of The Week- An Cnoc 12 year old Single Malt
After sampling about a dozen whiskies this week and drinking about the same again, it was the the one drank after work on Thursday night that caught my eye. An Cnoc 12 year old single malt (pronounced An Knock) is one of those distilleries in Scotland suffereing an identity crisis. The actual name of the distillery is Knockdhu but the whisky is branded An Cnoc as to avoid confusion with Knockando Distillery. Anyway its a lovely cracking whisky, its not the sort of dram you would have after work or late at night, but it hit the spot for me. It has a light grassy citrus flavour to it which would make it great aperitif. It has a decent finish, some fudge with a touch of chalkyness that clings to the palate. Enjoy!
