Everything lovely about anCnoc single malt with a delicate, savory puff of smoke.

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.

 A "rascan" is a traditional farmer’s tool used to harvest peat from the bogs. So the name alone tells you a bit about anCnoc Rascan Peated Single Malt Whisky. But all anCnoc Whiskies are Highlanders at their heart, so the peating is very mild. So what we are saying is that anCnoc Rascan Peated is all of the lovely, fruit-forward and delicate single malt that anCnoc fans are expecting with just a pleasant whiff of peat smoke in the background.

Smartass Corner:
The smoky/peaty/charring flavor of Scottish Whiskies is measured by the phenol levels measure in parts-per-million (ppm), and anCnoc Rascan clocks in at just 11.1 ppm. By contrast, Bruichladdich Octomore is a heavily-peated monster with 169 ppm — more than fifteen times more.

Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
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.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
