anCnoc - New Release's

Flaughter

The Flaughter spade is used to remove the top layer of peat which is richer, more rooty and produces more reek. This gives a heavier, smokier flavour to the whisky, in this case, with a PPM of 14.8.

Colour: anCnoc Flaughter is pale gold.

Nose: Initially smoky and ashy. Underneath that, fresh vanilla notes ooze softness and creaminess while a sharper hint of sticky toffee offers a balancing sweetness.

Taste: A warming and smooth experience; peaty and intense but remarkably rounded, it flickers with hints of fragrant pipe tobacco, orchard fruits, brown sugar sweetness and a slight medicinal overtone. An intensely flavoursome, smoky and smooth finish.

Price: £50.00 per bottles

Availability: Now at www.edencroft.co.uk.



Rutter

The Rutter spade is used to size and separate the peat blocks producing a turf that is slow burning. This peat creates less reek and therefore gives the whisky a more fragrant smokiness, in this case, with a PPM of 11.0.

Colour: anCnoc Rutter is sparkling gold in appearance.

Nose: Initially very smoky, it quickly unveils the unmistakable anCnoc character with delicate spices, juicy pineapples, peardrops and gentle vanilla. Rich and warming.

Taste: Full-bodied and bursting with peaty richness. Soft undertones of honey, creamy vanilla, toffee and leather are punctuated by the freshness of green apples.

Price: £50.00 per bottles

Availability: Now at www.edencroft.co.uk.

Old Pulteney - Stroma Malt Whisky Liqueur.

Hailing from the far North East of Scotland, off the Caithness coast, Stroma Malt Whisky Liqueur takes it name from the windswept Orcadian Isle.  Stroma originates from the Norse meaning ‘island in the stream’ which also refers to the dangerous currents on the island’s shores, including the infamous ‘Swilkie’ whirlpool. Stroma’s lighthouse warns ships of these nearby powerful currents.

This fine liqueur is a careful blend of award winning malt whiskies from Old Pulteney; a mix of lighter and more vigorous malt whiskies. Stroma is smooth, sweet tasting and warming and like the island itself,  Stroma is packed full of robust and rugged undertones.

Guaranteed to appeal to the more discerning drinker, this unique liqueur can be served neat or over ice. Stroma Malt Whisky Liqueur from Old Pulteney leaves a pleasantly warm and comforting afterglow.

Price: £17.50 per bottle - saving 19% on the normal retail price of £21.50.

Availability: Available now at www.edencroft.co.uk.
