Review #399 | /r/Scotch Review #157 – anCnoc 24yr
ABV: 46% ABV | 92pf
Age: 24 Years
Mashbill: Single Malt
Source: r/scotchswap Sample
Nose: Sherry, leather, pepper, stewed fruits, cherry, raspberry strawberry cocoa
Taste: Bitter, oaky, spicy peppery. Sherry notes are there though. Sweet toffee, vanilla, stewed fruits, raspberry strawberry grapes and figs. Almost like jam.
Finish: Short, sort of hot, dry and drying. Almost oaky, peppery, tannic and bitter.
Overall: This was oddly hot and tannic despite what 24 years in sherry should have done for a whiskey. It’s not that I didn’t expect there to be some wood characteristic but the sherry is present in the nose and palate and then dries right up for an overly bitter and dry finish.
