Whisky Reviews for An Cnoc peatheart

20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.85 points

  1. Islay1815 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Blind tasting

    Oily in the glass, very light color, reminiscent of white wine.
    I tapped on Islay (young Caol Ila or Lagavulin), possibly finish in a sweet wine barrel, for example. Moscatel and ABV of about 50%, and about 35ppm

    The resolution as an Ancnoc really surprised me! ????
    • Nose
      86 86
      When smelling, the alcohol stings refreshingly easily. Then light fruit, salt, smoky smoke
    • Taste
      87 87
      The whisky tastes sweet, reminds me of apples and apricots. Slightly metallic teen. The smoke tastes slightly greasy here too.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The finish is quite long and bright fruitiness and cold smoke remain after more than 10 minutes.

  6. DB1965 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    I am not a big fan of the peated whiskys on the mainland. Only Longrow is an exception.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Smoke from a campfire, tobacco, fruity.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Tones of peat smoke, tobacco, leather, vanilla. Not very interesting.
    • Finish
      80 80
      The aftertaste seems very long due to the persistent smoke, but that is not it. No, not my whisky.

  9. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A fine peat, very mineral, like pebbles that slide in the bed of a river. Cereals, a discreet vanilla, some white fruits. On the palate it's a little light, the pepper rises, to explode in a nice finale.

    (Retry from a new bottle)

    N- Open up well with bright sour citrus candy on layer of burnt butter, soft tar, paper ash and whiff of nail polish. Good strength right thru to the back of nose, pleasantly floral, citrus, orange and vanilla. (87/21)

    P- Consistent with the bouquet, sweet smokes with gingery heat and whiff of nail polish on a floral sphere. Earthy, well rounded but narrow, may be it is how this was intended. (86/20)

    F- Medium, ashy, gingery warm with fruity sweet, balanced and unoffensive despite heavily peated. (85/19)

    B/B- 86/20, like the old "Cutter" better.

    Cereal- 2 / Fruity- 3 / Floral- 3 / Peaty- 2 / Feint- 1 / Sulphur- 1 / Woody- 2 / Winery- 2

    Weighted Rate- 80pt
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
