    You’ll never forget your first love. Back in 2014 when this limited edition Rutter was released, I tried my very first single malt whiskies. AnCnoc Rutter and Ardbeg Uigeadail were the first two single malts that I really liked so I bought a full bottle of it. Now, 5 years and 665 whiskies later, I finally revisited this dram. It’s pretty straightforward without too much complexity but then again, you don’t always need a complex whisky in order to enjoy it. I still love the mix of light smoky and fruity flavours in this one. The price that I paid back in 2014 (54€) was definitely worth it. Me and my best whisky buddy bought 5 bottles amongst the two of us. Tastes a bit like a weaker but good Ardmore. Great summer dram too (I only enjoy heavily peated drams during the colder, more rainy months). Nostalgy in a glass for me.

    Compared to the Barrow and Tushkar, this one is the fruitiest and perhaps even a bit floral.
    • Nose

      A fruity maltiness that reminds me of a Belgian tripel. Peach and apple. Peat too, but less than the Barrow and the Rushkar.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Peat, apple, peach, vanilla and gingerbread.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Peat, apple and gingerbread.

    Simple dram but very very pleasurable. It's definitely smoky but still gives enough way for the sweet and fruity character of An Cnoc to shine through. 
    • Nose
      Spirity and peaty, little cask influence in this one. Apples, lots and lots of green apples. It's smoky, it's fruity and it's malty.
    • Taste
      Again, the green fruits are there, its fresh fruits which have been smoked. Oily and buttery, a mouthfeel you can chew. There a little bit  of spice in the way white pepper. 
    • Finish
      Short to medium, the smoke carries on with a nice touch of sweetness.

    [October, 2015]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle with botling stamp L14-076-R14/5106-1B that I bought for 54 Euro in March, 2015.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state a delicious sweet and (inland) peaty profile that is very quaffable.  It reminded me of some very nice Ardmore drams...
