Ancnoc Peatheart Batch 2
The heart of the peatlands lies in the north and west of the Scottish uplands. Peat, a natural resource, was historically embraced as fuel to fire the still and dry the barley for the distillation of whisky. Peat is traditionally cut by hand using several traditional cutting tools. Peatheart uses barley, specified by Ancnoc’s Master Blender, malted to 40 PPM.
Nose: Understated peat smoke and barbecue balanced by ripe pineapples, pears and a dark, rich tone of baked toffee apples. Subtle vanilla and sparks of fresh lemon rind lend lightness and elegance to the composition.
Taste: Structured and full, with rich smoke in balance with juicy gummy bears and the light, fizzy sweetness of spun sugar. Undertones of a hay barn and fudge give it a delicious weight.
Finish: long and growing, distinctly spicy and sweet with a warming, smoky finale.
