AnCnoc Rutter Highland single malt Scotch Whiskey. Distilled at Knockdhu distillery. The Rutter spade is used to size and separate the peat blocks producing a turf that is slow burning. This peat creates less reek and therefore gives the whiskey a more fragrant smokiness, in this case, with a PPM of 11.0.
Nose: Initially very smoky, it quickly unveils the unmistakable anCnoc character with delicate spices, juicy pineapples, peardrops and gentle vanilla. Rich and warming.
Taste: Full-bodied and bursting with peaty richness. Soft undertones of honey, creamy vanilla, toffee and leather are punctuated by the freshness of green apples.
