An Cnoc

The colour is yellow (straw), and the nose is light and marked by liquorice, vanilla and cereal hints.
The palate evokes yeast and beer with a slight bitterness at the finish. A surprising malt, with pronounced beer accents!

Personal Comment
This Speyside malt did not really impress me. A rather good bottle, but no more...
A second tasting did not modify the quotation? This whisky has a lack of complexity and nuances, but however it is a pleasant whisky. It's quality puts it in a good competition position with all kind of blends of the same price range.
The malted and slightly acid hints of this unpretentious whisky made me change slightly my quotations at the third tasting.
A slightly smoly nose on a malty background. In the mouth, this relatively complex whisky mixes malt to liquorice hints. Quite a nice finish.
Apperance: Amber Nose: Medium prickle in the straight nose. Very Speysideish character with fresh fruits, floral notes and some cereal stuff. Complex, rich and very satisfying with a beautiful balance. The diluted nose has the floral elements in the foreground, mainly leafy hints like lawn clippings but also fragrant and green-house elements and heather flowers. Some fresh apples, orange marmelade and peaches. Cooked maize, hot rocks, rice pudding and much more. Body: Very light and not at all stickyPalate: Not as full as the nose, sort of thin and not as sweet as I expected. Not much happens until the swallow when it intensifies significantly. Dry, sort of floral and slightly woody hints roll up. The finish is long with cocoa powder, ground coffee beans and! gentle wood spices. Comments: Refined and very well composed, with more body this would have been magnificent. Make sure to drink this when you are very sensitive to fine nuances though; after dinner, or after having drunk a beer or two, this will just feel like a cheap blend.

Note Whisky-distilleries: this quote is so different from mine, that I did not include it in the calculation of the average. This probably concerns another bottle...

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
