Rascan joins the anCnoc Peaty Collection

Inver House Distillers has unveiled a fourth addition to its anCnoc Highland single malt Scotch whisky’s Peaty Collection, which was launched in 2014. The dark and smoky Rascan is named after a traditional peat-cutting tool.

Matured in American oak ex-bourbon barrels for nearly a decade, Rascan has a phenol content of 11.1 parts per million (ppm).

Launching with only 3,000 cases worldwide, it follows the Peaty Collection’s tradition of using dark and striking packaging to reflect the spirit of the liquid. A green glass bottle features an eye-catching black label with foil illustration of the traditional Rascan tool.

anCnoc brand manager, Stephanie Allison, comments: “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. While 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.”

Rascan will be available from this month in key international markets including UK, Canada, the US, Australia and Europe, with an RRP of £52.
