My tasting notes from the Peter Arkle first edition are here and the official notes for Edition 2 are-
A dark warehouse containing hundreds of casks of anCnoc sitting there quietly ageing is a very special thing to be allowed to see. It's like sneaking a glimpse into a holy place (a spiritual place!). Nothing seems to be happening but there's an incredible sense of time passing. Magic is happeningÃ¢â‚¬â€œÃ¢â‚¬â€œslowly and quietly. This Limited Edition is matured in American and Spanish oak barrels resulting in a refreshingly light dram.
Nose: Sweet and full-bodied bursting with spicy vanilla and rich toffee aromas followed by fresh lemons, cooked green apples and a just hint of coconut.
Colour: Light amber.
Taste: Sweet, warm and spicy. Dried fruit cake, creamy vanilla and toffee are followed by a distinct note of zesty orange peel and enveloped in leathery richness.
Non-chill filtered, natural colour
