anCnoc Rascan

$79.99

Size
750ml, bottle

The anCnoc Rascan is a lightly peated single malt Scotch whisky matured in American ex-bourbon barrels for nearly a decade. It is named after a tool used to cut peat for drying malted barley, which is a key ingredient in Scotch whisky. The Rascan has a complex flavor profile with notes of honey, vanilla, spice, and smoke.

Description

The anCnoc Rascan has a muted gold color. On the nose, it offers an initial sweetness of honey, followed by green apples and citrus fruits. These fruity notes are typical of anCnoc whiskies. The peaty influence comes through gradually, with earthy peat smoke complementing the sweetness.

On the palate, the peat smoke becomes more pronounced, but it is well-balanced with sweet vanilla and hints of toffee. There is also a subtle leathery undertone. The finish is light and elegant, with the smokiness slowly fading out.

Overall, the anCnoc Rascan is a complex and well-balanced whisky that is sure to please both fans of peated and unpeated malts. The light peat smoke adds a touch of intrigue without overwhelming the other flavors.
