Whisky Reviews for An Cnoc 2005

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.80 points

  1. DramMax scored this whisky 88 points Member Junior

    Complex and powerful, two terms that perfectly qualify the nose. Peat is present, menthol and vegetable. It takes us to the confines of coniferous forests before disappearing in favor of gluttony. We delight in a crumble of the cat that coughs (apple, cinnamon, brown sugar), just out of the oven, accompanied by its melting ice and vanilla leaving the aromas intertwine. Notes of vine peaches and strawberries (madeleine with strawberry) finally sublimate the fruitiness. The mouth returns to nature and peat! The flowers dominate (white roses) with aromatic plants. Notes of pine honey transport us a moment, gently, before a hint of bitterness (grapefruit) does harmonize all. Finely sweet (almond paste) and vanilla, the final is long and pleasant. An Atypical Year Cnoc that does not lack assets!
