Character Goatson
A “go-to” Highlander with sublime, complex palate and amazing aromatics.

John Morrison found a patch of land rich with barley, Highland spring water, and shallow bogs of dry peat. He smartly grasped the opportunity and bought the Knock Estate from the Duke of Fife, giving birth to the Knockdhu distillery  in 1894. With time the methods of production have changed, but their dedication to quality has not. Today they produce a wide range of Single Malts of various styles, ages, and special editions.

anCnoc 12 year old is the core of their Single Malt range, and it is one of our Highland favorites. It is officially located in Aberdeenshire, but it is in the top end. If the distillery were located five miles to the west it would qualify as a Speyside so it is not surprising that this Single Malt shares many of the light, fruit-forward characteristics of the region. And since the Whisky is aged in refill ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks, the wood influence is subtle and refined, revealing a cleaner — we might even say more authentic spirit.

Smartass Corner:
AnCnoc — pronounced “a-nock” — is named after the local village of Knock in Banffshire. Previously, this Single Malt was named “Knockdhu” after it’s distillery. But there was a lot of confusion with the nearby and similarly-named “Knockando” distillery, so it was rebranded.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
