Whisky Reviews for An Cnoc Barrow

- Ancnoc Barrow 46%. Sampled Feb 2020. Now that's a pale whisky! About as pale as whisky can get given that it has to sit in a barrel for 3 years by law. Aroma is new make spirit, estery slightly peachy. Has that young estery dried apricot and nectarine oddness of some new make (e.g. Clydeside new make). Taste is quenching and watery up front, moving to salty and papery wood, then some buttery notes before an abrupt smoke note and a finish that suggests estery fruits, oak and smoked salt in equal measure. It's ok. It's a bit interesting if a lot immature and under-delivering on smoke. It's very drinkable but I'm pretty underwhelmed.
Pleasant smoke, citrus, vanilla
Smoke, spicy, fruity, milk chocolate
Medium long and spicy
Very tasty, if you like smoke, you can only recommend this.
- Very standard but enjoyable, certainly for its price class. Could have been a standard bottling from Islay. More Islay-ish than the Tushkar and the Rutter in fact. Also more barley-driven.
Peat, vanilla, apple, barley, mocha and caramel.
Peat, gingerbread, vanilla sugar, mocha and lime.
Peat and gingerbread.
- Young "bored" smoky whisky, somewhat strongly reminiscent of 10-year-old Ardbeg. It would be interesting to compare them ...
The aroma is very high in iodine, peat, algae, spices and salt. In the background - black soil, engine oil, overripe berries and a metallic shade.
Oily, salty, peppery, with citrus acidity and a good proportion of phenols.
Long-lasting, oily and at the same time dry, completely smoky, filled with spices, salt, iodine, with a taste of chewing tobacco.
- Drier than the Rascan and looking a little younger. I liked the Rascan a little better. Since the overall differences are not earth-shattering, you don't have to buy both.
also sugary sweet and nice peat smoke. Citrus, grassy and possibly a little younger than the Rascan. But only nuances.
In the mouth rather on the dry smoky side, the sweetness is still there, but very pushed into the background.
Pepper, sweet, spicy, dry peat smoke.
- Very bright, but surprisingly tasty. You don't get off your stool, but it's not a bad whisky
Flavors of cereals and vegetables, light notes of fruit, fine smoke lies above everything
At first only smoke, then there is a lot of sweetness and some fruit, hints of custard and almond notes
In short, but now surprisingly sweet, in the end the smoke and a little oak
- For normal price interesting whisky, but for me this was not something very special.
- - very light white wine (almost water)
- good NAS whisky,
- is great to drink, surprisingly soft, tasty and tasty (if you like smoke), the 46% are barely noticeable, great surprise, a bit rougher and edgier than the CUTTER and not so sweet
- P / L: approx. 50 € the liter is fully in order for the quality
medium-strong smoke, liquorice, spice, citrus, soft, light character
softer but intensely smoky onset, slowly increasing smoke with a lot of campfire smoke
soft medium length finish,
long soft cold smoke in the aftertaste
