anCnoc Rutter Bottling Note

Distilled by Knockdhu in the Highlands, this is a peated anCnoc single malt Scotch whisky, one of the first from a new collection of peaty expressions made by the distillery. Peated to a level of 11.0 PPM (parts per million), the Rutter is the less peaty of the two first releases in the range. It is named after a type of spade used to size and separate peat blocks from one another.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Yep, there's peat in there alright. Soon though, we're into lemon and nuttiness, then spice, Earl Gray tea, oat biscuits, and yes, pineapple chunks. Vanilla develops, as do green apple slices.

Palate: The apple now becomes fruity boiled sweets, and on into bubblegum, all sat on a cloud of smoke. Slightly chocolatey too.

Finish: Still relatively light but now there are notes of tobacco and leather too.

Overall: An interesting coming together of classic, light anCnoc and smoky peat at a level of 11 PPM.

User Reviews of the anCnoc Rutter

Hot and Bitter

Horrible stuff. Nose was off. Overwhelming bitterness with a long, lingering unpleasant aftertaste. Same with the 12 year old. Bought them both (last week) and can't finish a glass of either one of them. I am curious to see how Jim's bible for 2016 scores it - assuming what I got was a new bottling.

"Meaningfully smoked"

Deligate yet perfectly balanced, lightly peaty highland malt. Reminds me my favorite scotch blend Black & White and my favorite Ardbeg, Airig Nam Beist. The creamy peat (something like Airig Nam Beist), spices and sweet-dry balance are just about right.
Quite young, but overall high quality malt, justifies the price tag. I can't wait to see this 10-12 year old.

I wrote the 'Delightful'

It's good to see Jim Murray agrees with me. He has just awarded this 96.5/100.

A great lighter alternative to Islay.
