anCnoc 2001 neue Vintage Expression – mit Tasting Notes

Eine weitere Neuankündigung der Knockdhu Distillery: anCnoc Vintage 2001 als limitierte Sonderabfüllung. Nur 1.000 Cases weltweit. Und keine für Deutschland? Doch!

anCnoc, Vintage 2001, 46%, ncf, nca, 6.000 Flaschen, 55.- GBP (ca. 70.- EUR)

ncf = no chill-filtration (keine Kältefiltration), nca = no color added (ohne Zusatz von Zuckerkulör)

UPDATE: Die Flaschen kommen im April in den deutschen Handel. Wann und zu welchem Preis steht noch nicht fest, aber ich bekomme ein Update. Und es sind 6.000 Flaschen.

UPDATE2: Es werden 600 Flaschen nach Deutschland kommen und der Preis von ca. 70.- passt in etwa.

So wie ich das lese, kommt der aber nicht in den deutschen Handel. Vielleicht findet ja doch die eine oder andere Flasche ihren Weg zu unseren Händlern. Bei den 1.000 Cases bin ich mir nicht sicher, gehe aber von 6.000 Flaschen aus (6 pro Karton).

Originale Tasting Notes

anCnoc Vintage 2001 has matured in Spanish and American oak casks and has been bottled in its most natural form neither chill-filtered nor coloured and as a result this dram may develop a light haze with the addition of water or if kept at a cold temperature. This haze is a natural characteristic of whisky that is non chill-filtered.

  • Colour: Vintage gold
  • Nose: Brimming with freshly squeezed lemons and ripe blood oranges. Creamy vanilla, ground spices and a touch of new leather follow.
  • Taste: A hint of set lime honey, vanilla and a distinct chocolate presence. The finish drifts off slowly with a zesty freshness.
