94.5/100 – Whisky Bible 2014
90/100 – Ralfy, of
Review: – Ralfy – AnCnoc 12yo – YouTube

In the Whisky Bible, Jim Murray (author) has 4 separate categories, each marked out of 25, that he totals up for the final score out of 100. These categories are Nose, Taste, Finish, and lastly the overall balance and complexity. It’s this last category where the AnCnoc 12yo scores an almost perfect 24.5/25 with the comment “a more complete or confident Speyside-style malt you are unlikely to find. Shimmers with everything that’s great about Scotch whisky…always a real dram, but this is stupendous.”

Combine Jim Murray’s mark with that of Ralfy, who rarely gives a score in the 90s, and you’ve clearly got an excellent whisky in the AnCnoc.
