Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship anCnoc 12 Year Old to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

anCnoc 12 Bottling Note

Knockdhu renamed their whiskies anCnoc to avoid confusion with the nearby Knockando distillery. This 12 year old exhibits a gentle, non-sherried style of whisky.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Aromatic, quite robust. Honeysuckle, fresh flowers, cereals, barley.

Palate: Medium, good sweetness. Madeira, winter spices, mocha, Crème de Cacao, herbal hints and toasted granary bread.

Finish: Medium length, great interplay between oak and barley.

Good value

I am far from an expert here, but I find it very smooth a bit sweet. Finish lingers nicely so the taste remains with you. Will recommend and buy again.

Spicy malty and decent.

Tasted neat.

Vanilla, citrus nose with perfume malt (possibly Horlicks) and something reminiscent of spiced rum, tropical fruit and shortbread. Hard to identify exactly but quite nice.

Medium bodied, spicy, chewy and lingers with brandy-like alcohol vapour on the tongue, vanilla, slight sweet liquorice, singed mince pie filling.

Nose is still immediately available after tasting.

Quite long, mildly astringent and slightly oak tannin follow-through.

Very good for the price, complex and will not disappoint.

I'd actually lower the alcohol even more to 37% as I suspect it might highlight more of the stuff going on.

Splash of water will change everything.

A worthy lighter tasting single malt.

One of my favorite oaked single malts. Kind of reminds me of Macallan 15 year old oak barrel single malt. For those who want a lighter alternative to sherry casked single malts, this is a worthy alternative at a very reasonable price.

An excellent single malt.

A well balanced single malt fits to anytime. I really like it. Is it only me get an aroma of sandalwood ......? Whatsoever I give 4.5 stars for this nice whisky.

The beauty of taste is with the beholder.

Having paddled a canoe through the Knockando Rapids 2 years ago and not making time to visit the distillery I purchased a bottle to celebrate the trip lower down the river.
My preferred tipple is malt whiskey above anything else with Ancnoc being a permanent fixture in my home. I should drink it with a little more reserve than I do but .....

Very smooth and balanced

Very smooth and flavourful. It's a cut above the standard malts available at this price. I will be buying again.

Buy more when I see.

Very good whiskey. I bought it in Ukraine, in Kiev several times. The price is normal. Great taste.

Decidedly average

I've had this whisky in the past and I seem to remember had more 'ooomph'. It's still pleasant enough and very easy drinking - plenty of fruit (I got pineapple!), vanilla and honey - but not as good as I remember it. It may have been 46% in the past? I suppose for the price it's fair enough but I think when this bottle's finished there will be no more.

Like coming home

To the two children who posted the previous comments, you have my sympathy and I sincerely hope that in time, you learn to appreciate single malt whisky. This is clean, elegant, sophisticated. The moment I tasted it, the image appeared in my mind of a small gathering of native Gaelic speakers sitting around an open fire, the remains of a freshly-caught salmon in the background, with a clarsach gently playing in the background.
Ancnoc is single malt whisky for grown-ups. For people who don’t use an “old fashioned” to drink it. Or say, “on the rocks”. For those who have no idea what “Spring Break” is. This is the first time I have ever given a 5 star rating to a whisky on this site.

This is the PERFECT whisky ... TO AVOID!

Watery, boring, weak, completely uninteresting. All in all, cheap garbage. I suppose if thats your thing then this is the whisky for you. But if you want flavour, and body, 100% avoid this one. This is apparently overrated by many, I dont understand it. Jim Murray "HIGHLY" recommends this stuff which is why I do not take him serious, he's about as overrated as this whisky. The only "good" thing about the Ancnoc 12 is that every whisky you have after it, will taste 10 times better than otherwise.. including cheap blends!
