Review #399 | /r/Scotch Review #157 – anCnoc 24yr


Distiller: anCnoc

Bottler: anCnoc

ABV: 46% ABV | 92pf

Age: 24 Years

Maturation: Sherry

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.

Thanks for reading!
