This An Cnoc is so named because throughout the Scottish uplands, most extensively in the north and west, you will find the heart of the peatlands. Remote and isolated yet rich in iconic wildlife, this environment rules the landscape and provides a valuable fuel for the whisky-making process. This is Batch 1 and is heavily peated to 40.0 ppm.

|Distillery: The finish has a lingering warmth with a floral smokiness.|
