AnCnoc Peatheart Edition 2 70cl 46°
The Ancnoc Peatheart is the latest edition of the Acnoc Peaty range. It is the most peaty Single Malt from the Knockdhu distillery at 40 PPM*. It is produced in the heart of the Highland peat bogs, it is aged in Bourbon casks before being bottled at 46 °.
This second batch offers a gourmet version marked by its characteristic ashy and smoky side to which fruity notes are added.
*PPM - phenols parts per million, measuring the influence of the oily smoke peat infusing the germinated barley during the drying process. The longer the exposure, the highest the ppm value is. A well peated Islay whisky reaches a 40-50 ppm. But every whisky still develops its very own character and mouthfeel sensation, depending on the style of each distillery.
