AnCnoc 12 YO

Light, yet complex, it’s smooth yet challenging, each twist and turn delivers a surprise. This is a dram that has something for everyone. The nose delivers soft very aromatic notes with a hint of honey and lemon in the foreground. The palate is sweet to start with an appetising fruitiness and a long smooth finish.

The proprietors of the Knockdhu distillery have managed to confuse their customers by repeatedly switching between the brand names ‘An Cnoc’ and ‘Knockdhu’ over the years. In 2003, they redesigned their 12 year old standard official bottling with the name’An Cnoc’ to avoid confusion with the products of the Knockandu distillery.

DCL (Distillers Company Limited) started construction on Knockdhu in 1893; a few years before ‘the whisky boom’ of the late 19th century reached its peak. Actual production started in October 1894 and it continued uninterrupted until 1931 when the distillery was closed. One year earlier the management of Knockdhu had been taken over by Scottish Malt Distillers (SMD), who decided to ressume production again in 1933. Knockdhu distillery remained in operation for exactly fifty years until the economic crisis of the early 1980’s hit Scotland; United Distillers (the owners at the time) decided to close Knockdhu again in 1983. The closure wasn’t permanent. Inver House bought
Knockdhu distillery from United Distillers in 1988 and resumed production of whisky on February 6, 1989. Now owned by Pacific Spirits which is in turn owned by the Great Oriole Group (ThaiBev) from Thailand, the largest alcohol producer in Thailand.

Glenfarclas 15 YO

An incredible dram from Glenfarclas, we can't say enough about it. It's a juicy, Christmas cake of a whisky, absolutely huge! This 15 year old matured in sherry wood, a superb malt which earned 95 points from Jim Murray. A lot of the whisky in this is clearly much older than 15 years, this is a really sherried dram and we love it.
