An Cnoc Cutter 46% 70cl
The newest Malt in the range of Peated whiskies from An Cnoc is 'Cutter'. Named after a tool used to cut drier peat from shallower areas, Cutter has been peated to 20.5ppm making this the peatiest in the range, so far.
The nose is big with oily smoke and soot, then a burst of citrus and pineapple show through. The palate is as you would expect, peat to the fore with leather and spicy, then citrus fruits and vanilla. The finish is elegant and long, with spice and peat and a burst of orange peel.
