anCnoc Flaughter, 46%

Price: $65 Issue: Summer 2017 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Peated to 14.8 ppm, this expression from anCnoc's Peaty Collection falls between Rutter and Cutter in terms of its phenolic level. Immediately smoky on the nose, with oily fudge and milky coffee. Well-balanced in the mouth, with rich flavors of peat, soft fruit, and vanilla, plus a hint of brine and iodine. The finish is lengthy, with peat embers, walnuts, and more iodine.
