The most heavily peated Ancnoc yet but this still retains a freshness and a lightness of touch that the distillery is well known for. The barley has been peated to an impressive 40PPM, giving a bold bonfire and barbecue smoked character to this sweet and fruity dram.
Colour: Pale amber
Nose: An initial smoky burst surrenders to a surge of fruitiness. Ripe pears and the citrus notes of apples and limes with just a touch of tobacco in the background. The nose is balanced yet an undeniable smoky sweetness prevails.
Palate: Smoke laced with leather and sweet stewed apples. Chocolate is there too, perfectly complemented by sweet vanilla and zesty lemon.
Finish: Has a lingering warmth with a floral smokiness.
