anCnoc 1975Vandaag kwam er bericht van Inverhouse Distillers dat binnenkort de oudste anCnoc ooit uitgebracht gaat worden. Het gaat om een 1975 vintage editie van slechts 3 vaten.

De whisky wordt gebotteld op een vatsterkte van 44.2% en heeft een adviesprijs van £ 300. De whisky zal beschikbaar zijn in een aantal markten waaronder het Verenigd Koninkrijk, de Verenigde Staten, Rusland en Canada. Of de whisky ook in Nederlandse winkels komt is nog de vraag.

De oude whisky is niet gefilterd en niet bijgekleurd. Er zijn in totaal 1590 flessen beshikbaar

Een decadente opmerking, maar in het huidige klimaat is dat een lage verkoopprijs voor een whisky die 38 of 39 jaar oud is!

The new anCnoc 1975 Vintage is here

On February 1 st 2015 anCnoc Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky will unveil its latest creation – anCnoc 1975 Vintage. Bottled late in 2014 this is the oldest expression ever released from Knockdhu Distillery and promises to be the ultimate treat for anCnoc fans and the most discerning whisky drinkers around the world.


The whisky comes from only three American oak and Spanish oak ex-sherry casks laid down in 1975. The release consists of 1590 bottles. The whisky comes in its most natural form, it has not been chill-filtered or coloured and is presented at the cask strength of 44.2% ABV.


The recommended retail price is £300. anCnoc 1975 Vintage will be available in several key markets around the world including the UK, USA, Russia and Canada.


In-keeping with anCnoc's ethos of 'Modern Tradition', the 1975 Vintage is presented in a simple, striking bottle and encased in an elegant black tube.

anCnoc Assistant Brand Manager Stephanie Bridge sheds light on where the new Vintage fits within anCnoc's recent string of acclaimed releases.


“The last 12 months have been a very ambitious and a very
successful time for anCnoc. We unveiled the limited Peaty
Collection to a global audience and launched two travel retail
expressions as well as our popular 18 Year Old. The 1975 has
been anticipated for a number of years, it’s distinctively
anCnoc, a fantastic whisky and a superb addition to any whisky
collection.”


Tasting notes
Colour: Ebony with amber highlights
Nose: Rich and inviting. Waves of spicy dried fruit and creamy vanilla sweetness are accentuated by candied orange peel, green apple freshness and just a hint of cut flowers. This is a rare example of a very mature dram displaying in equal measures its robustness, liveliness and the unique Distillery character.
Taste: Full-bodied, intense and complex. Fruit cake, sticky toffee and seasoned leather are followed by signature notes of honey and lemons, leading eventually to a long, mouth-watering finish full of vibrant spice and earthy raisin sweetness.
