    A rather beautiful whisky, would very much like to have another bottle at the ready once the one I drink from has gone empty.

    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.
