AnCnoc 12 Years

A very fresh and sweet AnCnoc single malt. You will find some sweet malty notes that convert themselves to vanilla. On the tongue you will find some acidity that follows in a medium-long clear finish.

Nosing: ZitrusMalt
Citrus notes, nectarine and cereal

Taste: Tropical FruitMaltSpicesSweet
Light to medium body, slow arrival. Sweet but not overly so. Tropical fruits and malt. Some light spiciness develops. Could do with a little more attack.

Finish:PepperSpices
Medium length, some peppery burn on the tip of the tongue, spicy oak.

Comment:
This malt is what I would call a good introductory malt. It does enough that is interesting to differentiate itself from most mass produced single malts. The nose is good, but the body is a little light for me, there isn't enough upfront oomph. I reckon it could be really good at 43% but that burn on the finish might become problematic. Overall, considering the price, its definitely one to try.
