NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 16, 2014) - Over a century ago, the Scottish Knockdhu Distillery began producing whisky that carried a strong peaty flavor imparted from the fertile turf on which the distillery was built. Using history as a base of exploration, anCnoc (pronounced a-NOCK), a single malt produced by the distillery, is releasing a Limited Edition Peaty Collection that explores the bolder, smokier aspect of their classic Highland flavor in three different expressions.
The first two expressions of the collection reflect the distillery's modern approach to the craft of whisky production by focusing on phenol, a chemical component that impacts the smoky flavor. Traditionally, the more peated the barley, the higher the phenol levels in the spirit, and the smokier the whisky will be to taste.
The new range brings this into focus by displaying its PPM (parts per million) level on the bottle, allowing the drinker to select an expression with a level of smokiness to their liking. The first two expressions, Rutter and Flaughter -- named after traditional peat-cutting tools -- offer the whisky aficionado the opportunity to explore the role that phenol content plays in the enjoyment of whisky. A third expression will be released later this year.
"The Peaty Collection boasts a robustly dark profile reminiscent of the early whiskies when peat was used for firing stills and drying malted barley," says Stephanie Bridge of anCnoc. "As we say at Knockdhu, 'sometimes to go forward, you have to go back,' and that is just what we have done to give the sophisticated whisky drinkers a modern take on the world of peated whisky."
anCnoc Rutter, the first release of the Limited Edition Peaty Collection is named for the spade used in sizing and separating peat blocks. Peated to a PPM of 11, the whisky is initially very smoky, and then quickly unveils the unmistakable anCnoc character, giving way to delicate spices, juicy pineapple and gentle vanilla.
anCnoc Flaughter (pronounced FLAH-ter) is named for the spade used to remove the top layer of peat. Peated to a PPM of 14.8, the whisky has a heftier, ashier flavor that gives way to warm vanilla notes with a hint of sticky toffee that provides a balanced sweetness.
anCnoc Rutter and anCnoc Flaughter will be available in June, at a suggested retail price of $85. For more information, visit http://ancnoc.com/.
About anCnoc Single Malt Scotch Whisky
anCnoc (pronounced a-NOCK) is a single malt Scotch whisky created using a traditional process that has changed very little over time. anCnoc is Gaelic for the nearby Knock Hill, and its home distillery is Knockdhu, which means "black hill" in Gaelic. Located on the very edge of Speyside, the Knock estate sits on land rich in peat. The fine single malt is created using traditional production methods, to make a refreshingly modern whisky.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
