AnCnoc 12 Review
Expression: 12 Year
Category: Single Malt Scotch
I hate to be a party pooper, but every day of your life ain’t gonna turn out to be the best day you’ve ever had.
I’d even venture a guess that unless you’re an unstoppable fiesta machine like the Whisky Jerk, on most days you probably
- Wake up
- Go to work
- Shuffle home
- Watch old
- And go to bed
Such is LIFE.
By the same token, every whisky bottle in your collection ain’t gonna be a fucking classic.
That’s just the way el cookie crumbles.
For every Redbreast 12 and Glenmorangie Ealanta that honors your shelf with its mere presence you’re bound to have a crew of plain-jane malts that stick around for eons.
Not horrendous enough to re-gift or dump down the drain, but not enticing enough to drink.
And in a nutshell, that’s the AnCnoc 12.
Extremely goddamn ordinary.
It’s a good one to sip with some old friends you went to high school with … who you never stopped hanging out with 25 years later.
