    I’ve only tried one vintage An Cnoc to date and that was a fabulous 1975/2014 Ob [WB], but I’m not expecting anything like that here. Coming in at 16.7ppm, the label states that the whisky is from a peated cask. So does that mean the spirit wasn’t peated prior to filling?

    C: This isn’t my style of malt at all [sherry-sweet peat], though it is well executed. An Cnoc have brought out a few peated expressions of late [Flaughter & Rascan for example], and this appears very similar in character. Packaging-wise, there’s more than a passing resemblance to Bruichladdich’s Octomore series, many of which were 16.7ppmx10. It’s pleasing to see vintages on whisky, but for £100!?
