AnCnoc "Peter Arkle" Limited First Edition Single Malt 46% Knockdu Distillery
Newly cut Granny Smith apple skin, cider, caramel, vanilla rich, sweet 'n spicy, although there is a hint of youth in the depths, a faint earthy rubber note, perhaps just a hint of peat.
However the palate is sherry sweet, soft and velvet coating with an explosion of tannins on the mid palate suggesting the use of European oak, then liquorice and a lingering vinous and wooded finish.
A splash of water releases the sherry character on the nose and dampens the harsh tannins on the palate. 84
