anCnoc ‘Blas’, 54%, Single Malt Scotch Whisky

700 ml,  54 % abv, Scotland (Highland)

Blas, Gaelic for ‘taste’, has been created in partnership with Scottish fashion designer Patrick Grant.  The unique bottle and tube design embodies everything anCnoc represents; its Highland home, rich heritage and the spirit of A Modern Tradition.

This collectable limited edition expression has been matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, (Spanish and American oak) and has been bottled in its most natural form, not chill-filtered or coloured.

 

Description

Nose : Densely sweet and fruity, with notes of lemon and candied orange peel. Tones of bitter chocolate and vanilla add complexity and weight.

Taste : Full-bodied and oily. The initial burst of warm lemon tart is followed by notes of rum raisins and dark chocolate. A hint of freshly cut grass adds freshness and balance. The finish is long and satisfying with a bitter-sweet cocoa aftertaste.
