Like anCnoc 22 Years, this brand-new anCnoc 24 Year Old is a combination of ex-bourbon casks and sherry-seasoned casks.
anCnoc 24 yo
(46%, OB 2015)
Nose: aromatic, with a nice interplay of fruits (baked apple, grapefruit, orange marmalade) and honey with a bit of sherry influence (toffee and a Christmas cake kind of spiciness). After a while mint sets in and keeps growing. Dried flowers. Mouth: vanilla custard, raisins and toffee. Malty notes and candied orange. A light hint of popcorn. Quite some citrus again, as well as a hint of toasted, almost smoky oak. A nice leathery note too. Finish: medium long, with honey, pepper, raisins and a hint of cake.
A really nice dram, not necessarily a step up from the 22 Year Old, but good depth and maturity. Around € 160. Limited availability for now, it’s not even on the anCnoc website.
