Distiller notes: "The anCnoc 18 Year Old has matured in Spanish oak ex-sherry casks and American oak ex-bourbon barrels and has been bottled in its most natural form, neither chill-filtered nor colored. Color: Bronzed amber. Nose: Gentle spices and intense sweetness of dried fruits are topped with chocolate, ripe oranges and oiled leather. Taste: Full-bodied and bold, aromatic spices, fruit loaf and candied lemon are followed by a surge of vanilla, honey and caramel. The finish transforms from peppery and hot to deliciously sweet and smooth. ABV: 46%."
