Whisk(e)y Wednesday returns to Scotland with the anCnoc 12 Year Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky. This lovely product presents light smoke and subtle sweetness on the nostrils of anyone lucky enough to catch a whiff. It made me think of a pear on a grill. Upon taste there is consistency as fruit sugars match with a puff of light smoke and leaves you enjoying a very sippable beverage. It is a baked apple surprise of wonderment. Slight notes of caramel and floral tones find the back of the tongue and the whisky leaves with a nice sweet finish similar to honeydew. The anCnoc also finishes with a lingering warmness and a nice balance between the smoke, sweet, and fruity flavors. All in all we were happy with this whisky and I'd certainly suggest it to anybody looking for a new Scotch to try!

Whisk(e)y Wednesday is a blog post series on Bite and Booze sponsored by Calandro's Supermarket. Calandro's has one of Baton Rouge's best selections of bourbon, Scotch, Irish, and other whisk(e)ys as well as wine and craft beer. This WW feature was scored by Jay DucoteEric Ducote, and Jeremy Spikes. Scores are marked for Nose, Taste, Finish, and Balance and Complexity using our own proprietary scoring system. Marks are then added and averaged, leaving us with a final score out of a 100 point scale. Our scale should be looked at on the full range of 0-100 rather than an academic range where 70 is passing and anything less is failing. A 50 should be considered a very mediocre whisk(e)y while anything below 20 is absolute horse piss and anything above 90 is rather extraordinary.
