anCnoc releases 1975 Vintage single maltBy Neal Baker
anCnoc highland single malt Scotch whisky has just released its exclusive 1975 Vintage, drawn from just three casks at anCnoc’s Knockdhu Distillery.
anCnoc 1975 Vintage is neither chill-filtered nor coloured and is bottled at its natural cask strength of 44.2% ABV.
The whisky, which is matured in Spanish and American oak casks, is “spicy on the nose and accentuated by orange peel and green apple” according to its makers.
“To taste, the malt is full bodied, intense and complex with notes of fruit cake, sticky toffee and seasoned leather which leads to a long, sweet finish” says anCnoc.
Assistant brand manager an anCnoc, Stephanie Bridge, commented: “The last 12 months have been a very ambitious and a very successful time for anCnoc. We unveiled a limited edition peated collection to a global audience and launched two travel retail expressions as well as our popular 18 year old.
“The 1975 has been anticipated for a number of years, it’s distinctively anCnoc, a fantastic whisky and a superb addition to any whisky collection,” she said.
