Whisky Reviews for An Cnoc 35-year-old

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.50 points

  1. Vallado scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Apart from the finish, the barrel is barely noticeable despite the 35 years, that was probably no 1st or 2nd fill ... Alcohol also not well integrated, overall disappointing, as offer other old Bourbon Fassreifungen significantly more (for less money)
    • Nose
      82 82
      fresh fruit, floral, slightly malty, a hint of cardamom
    • Taste
      82 82
      vigorous, sharp onset, the alcohol is not well integrated at first, later vanilla with malt / cereals, astringent
    • Finish
      84 84
      long, spicy, slightly bitter finish

  2. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very pretty, having a temples, but he is still far from a masterpiece. Probably because of the strength in taste, he lacks a body.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Interesting, but not intense, making you sniff. I caught echoes of the skin (old leather briefcase), plastic (the shade is nice, although it sounds strange, but in this aromatic palette it is harmonious). The second nose is vanilla, cream, fresh roll, foliage.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Watery, not enough density, light body. I feel citrus acidity, bread, sesame seeds, tannins.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Measured and long enough, with a good balance of vanilla, sweet citrus and malt tones. At the end, the finish is soft, smoothly fading, with a delicate oak effect.

  3. Eun1 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      85 85
      Citrus flavors with vanilla, peaches, apricots and pear - still plenty of Brennereicharakter present. The length of Fassreifung is hardly noticeable in the aroma.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Oak spicy flavors with coffee and dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      83 83
      long, woody and dry
