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!).
AnCnoc — pronounced “a-nock” — is named after the local village of Knock in Banffshire.
