What they say:

anCnoc 12 Years Old

The anCnoc 12 year old is renowned the world over. Known as a must-have in any whisky drinker’s collection, it’s light and yet complex. Smooth yet challenging. And each twist and turn delivers a surprise. In fact, this is a dram that has something for everyone.


Gentle amber with a slight yellow hue.


Soft, very aromatic with a hint of honey and lemon in the foreground.


Sweet to start with an appetising fruitiness and a long smooth finish. Light yet complex, smooth yet challenging. This


What I say:

Sampled at the anCnoc masterclass in Edinburgh on 25th March 2015 and again during the #ModernTradition tweet tasting on 1st April 2015


Full amber gold (9/20), medium tears


Light floral heather blossom, fruity cider apples, lemon cream puff and malted milk biscuits, cereal barley draff


Sweet & Floral blossom honey vanilla cream, apple sauce, custard cream biscuits and crème brulee all with a generous squeeze of fresh zesty lemon juice. makes me think of pancakes!


Medium length, gentle, fruity honey, citrus fruits hints of zest. refreshing and cleansing


Sweet, friendly and approachable. A very drinkable introduction to anCnoc’s whisky.

Score: 84/100
