anCnoc unveils latest peated limited edition

1st October, 2015 by Amy Hopkins

Highland Scotch whisky brand anCnoc has extended its selection of limited edition peated whiskies with the launch of Rascan.


Rascan is the latest addition to anCnoc’s Peaty Collection

Named after a traditional peat-cutting tool, Rascan is the fourth global release in anCnoc’s Peaty Collection. First launched in March last year, the range marks the brand’s first foray into the peated Scotch whisky category.

Matured in American oak ex-Bourbon barrels for almost 10 years, Rascan has a phenol content of 11.1 parts per million (ppm).

The whisky is said to have a flavour of “sweet and spicy” vanilla notes, along with toffee, spice and a “smooth leathery undertone”.

“It’s been 12 months since the last anCnoc peaty malt was released globally, so we hope that Rascan is received by enthusiasts and collectors with as much excitement as there has been for us producing it,” said Stephanie Allison, anCnoc brand manager.

“Whilst it touches on familiar anCnoc flavour notes of citrus fruits and honey, the fine smoky liquid is decidedly different from the others in the collection and certainly one for peaty fans to try.”

Available from 1 October in key international markets, 3,000 cases of Rascan will be launched, carrying an RRP of £52.
