anCnoc Cutter, 46%
Price: $65 ● Issue: Summer 2017 ● Reviewer: Gavin Smith
Part of anCnoc's Peaty Collection, Cutter has been distilled from malt peated to 20.5 ppm. The result is a dram with a nose of ashy peat and medicine cabinets, backed by vanilla and canned apricots. Rich peat on the palate, with citrus fruit and crème brûlée. The slightly oily finish is long and bonfire-like.
