    How often do you see An'noc bottled independently... let's find out if this is a worthy match for the distillery profile or a dud...
    • Nose
      86 86
      the nose is sweet, fruity sweet candy and some hints of sour malt and a touch of baking spice. As it opens more spice, heat and some peppercorns. Mace and cloves with vanilla oak custard and hints of green tea leaves.

      The palate opens super sweet, barley sugar and oats. Spice cake and warm oak. matcha powder and strangely a touch of mochi candy. There's more things going on, maybe some oak smoke and some cask char or a touch of charcoal and oolong tea. Seems a little disjointed but still comes together nicely. The fruits start to face back here, more bourbon fruits like stone fruits and apricots.

      Hmm... this is where things sort of wander aimlessly. There's a big whack of sweets and oak spice, not so much heat but as it opened up more smoke became prevalent through the finish. as I've gotten to the bottom of the bottle it's turned back to all sweets and starfruit. Super tasty, and quite the dram from a rather unseen distillery.
