Vintage limited edition added to anCnoc whisky range


ancnoc 2001 whisky

A limited-edition vintage has been added to the anCnoc range of single malts from the Knockdhu distillery in Aberdeenshire.

The 2001 vintage has been matured in selected Spanish and American oak casks, stored for over 15 years in traditional dunnage warehouses. Bottled at 46% ABV, it has not been chill-filtered or coloured.

The combination of wood produces a whisky that is vintage gold in appearance with an outstanding depth, complexity and balance of flavour.

It starts with freshly squeezed lemons and ripe blood oranges, creamy vanilla, ground spice and new leather on the nose, with lime honey, vanilla and chocolate to taste.

Brand manager Stephanie Allison said: “Like all anCnoc bottlings, fans will be able to detect the unmistakable Knockdhu style in every drop of this spirit, but in particular it’s the complex depth of flavour of the 2001 that we’re really proud of. We’re sure it will be a hit with even the most discerning whisky drinker.”

Staying true to the distinctive anCnoc style, the 2001 Vintage packaging mirrors the minimalist design of anCnoc’s core range and features the contemporary but traditional illustration of the Knockdhu Distillery in ice blue foil.

Only 1,000 cases are available globally. In retail, the 2001 Vintage has a recommended price of £55 for a 70cl bottle.
