Ancnoc Peatheart Batch 3 70cl
Established in 1894, our Distillery Knockdhu, is one of the most enchanting in the Scottish Highlands and belted by a bounty of natural resources perfectly suited to making whisky. Knockdhu sits just under Knock Hill - the home of pure, clear water springs - and sits on the doorstep of a region rich in barley and peat.
Peatiness can be controlled by the amount of peat burnt and the humidity of the barley. The peat smoke generates phenols, and it is the phenol content that allows a whisky's 'peatiness' to be measured. The phenol content is expressed as PPM (parts per million) and to ensure consistency, Peatheart uses barley, specified by our Master Blender, malted to 34 PPM.
Nose: Sweet barbecue smoke and earthy peated notes blend with aromas of honey sweet spice to create a fragrant, grassy character.
Palate: Peaty smokiness laced with green apples and citrus, sweetened with a hint of vanilla and complimented by an oily smoke note which lingers in the finish.
Finish: Long and growing, distinctly spicy and sweet and with a warming, smoky finale.
