AnCnoc does it again, and you will be a fan.

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 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 is famous for releasing special editions of their signature single malt Whisky as vintages… meaning named by the year in which they were produced. Today we are talking about anCnoc 2000 — a simply beautiful expression of the talent, bottled in 2014. It has been aged in both Spanish Sherry and ex-Bourbon casks, bottled without any added colors or chill filtration (of course!).

Smartass Corner:
AnCnoc — pronounced “a-nock” — is named after the local village of Knock in Banffshire.

Ratings & Reviews
Antti
Antti,
is an outstanding, rich, Single Malt Scotch Whisky that has a zesty & fruity birth; while a full & creamy life leads to a long & delicate death with a hint of spice.

alexey,
Sherry and a hint of warm caramel, toffee, and oak on the nose. More Sherry and nice floral notes on the pallet. Oak and vanilla develop nicely and linger for a bit. A few drops of water open more floral notes and accentuate the oak. Aftertaste is pleasant with developing spices and bitterness, finishing with vanilla and a hint of dry grass. Overall very enjoyable and smooth ride.

Good, but the sherry forward flavor profile isn’t my favorite.

Unexpectedly enjoyable.
 
James
James,
Started off very sweet but then the spiciness hit me hard and lingered. Not a terrible whisky but I wouldn't purchase a full bottle personally.
 
Ivan
Ivan,
A superb depth of flavour from a sweet spirit that has benefits from its maturation time. This is the sort of bottling that defines single malts from the region.You can find a few Speysiders that will equal it,but it would be very difficult to beat it.That is my view- but I accept that there will be many differing (still valid) opinions.
