Wild about Whisky: Tops @Spar introduce a pair of excellent single malts from the Knockdhu distillery.....
AnCnoc 12yo Single Malt 43%
The golden warmth of honeycomb and barley with a hint of tobacco ash and lemon sherbet.
The palate offers liquid honey, syrupy with a surprising peppery finish.
Water creates lemon creams on the nose, while the palate has lemon vanilla with a charred oak finish. 85
AnCnoc 16yo Single Malt 46%
Malted barley stuffed with lemon vanilla then prickly spirit is evident with ripe juicy pear winning the olfactory battle.
There is intense vanilla and lemon sherbet on the tongue with a spicy peppery finish.
The age statement, non-chill filtered and the abv pack a huge flavour punch.
Excellent dram but neat or not at all! 87
