Gentle spices and intense sweetness of dried fruits are topped with chocolate, ripe oranges and oiled leather on the nose. Full-bodied and bold, aromatic spices, fruit loaf and candied lemon are followed by a surge of vanilla, honey and caramel on the palate. The finish transforms from peppery and hot to deliciously sweet and smooth.
The anCnoc 18 Year Old has matured in Spanish oak ex-sherry casks and American oak ex-bourbon barrels and has been bottled in its most natural form, neither chill-filtered nor coloured. As a result this dram may develop a light haze with the addition of water or if kept at a cold temperature. This haze is a natural characteristic of whisky that is non chill-filtered.
