A “go-to” Highlander with sublime, complex palate and amazing aromatics.

John Morrison found a patch of land rich with barley, Highland spring water, and shallow bogs of dry peat. He smartly grasped the opportunity and bought the Knock Estate from the Duke of Fife, giving birth to the Knockdhu distillery  in 1894. With time the methods of production have changed, but their dedication to quality has not. Today they produce a wide range of Single Malts of various styles, ages, and special editions.

anCnoc 12 year old is the core of their Single Malt range, and it is one of our Highland favorites. It is officially located in Aberdeenshire, but it is in the top end. If the distillery were located five miles to the west it would qualify as a Speyside so it is not surprising that this Single Malt shares many of the light, fruit-forward characteristics of the region. And since the Whisky is aged in refill ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks, the wood influence is subtle and refined, revealing a cleaner — we might even say more authentic spirit.

Smartass Corner:
AnCnoc — pronounced “a-nock” — is named after the local village of Knock in Banffshire. Previously, this Single Malt was named “Knockdhu” after it’s distillery. But there was a lot of confusion with the nearby and similarly-named “Knockando” distillery, so it was rebranded.
