    The fits, good uncomplicated malt!
    • Nose
      Honey, heather, herbs, oranges, apples and pears - ripe fruit;
    • Taste
      Strong - despite the 46% classic drinking strength, honey, sugar, rather sweet first, caramel, then bitter oranges, oak plus acidity;
    • Finish
      Enjoyable! Medium long and nice fruity!

    good malt, different to the good 12 and 16yo.
    • Nose
      very malty with light caramel and baked apples. milk chocolate and hazelnuts. light vanilla, very light cinnamon. much less fruity than other an cnocs i have had so far.
    • Taste
      same profile on the palate, perhaps a bit lighter than you would expect after nosing. I really cannot add anythin what we didn´t have on the nose.
    • Finish
      relatively long and very clean, slightly peppery

    Hand-selected by Master Distiller Stuart Harvey, anCnoc 1998 is a
    special un-chillfiltered limited edition treat for anCnoc lovers, a well
    balanced dram that gives the taste buds a well deserved tingle.
