An Cnoc 12 300x900
 

anCnoc 12 Year Old

Eastern Highlands 

 

anCnoc is gaelic for the hill and summons a wonderful picture of the southern slope of Knock hill from which the spring waters for this scotch flow.

Created by Inver House Distillers this Highlander follows the typical unpeated style of the region and is smooth, soft but not too flowery or sweet. This inexpensive malt makes for a delicate apertif and is excellent in cocktails.

Suggested Chocolate Pairing

Chuao - Miel and Black & White

Both of these bonbons work to accentuate the almond nuttiness of this whisky.  Miel also brings out more of the honey sweetness, while Black & White plays well with the malt and oak notes of this dram.
