    SMELL first impression very atypical with a strong gin note and herbs then ingenious with green apples, peaches also malt, fresh yeast dough and milk coffee. SCHMACK delivers as a young colleague with honey, vanilla, corn flakes and butter biscuits, while the citrus fruits turn back into gin, crazy .. In the ABGANG long with cocoa butter, fresh and oily. Mega nice thank you ...

    So what’s all the fuss about with Nc’nean then? MoM: ‘,.. the first fully organic modern distillery in Scotland powered by 100% renewable energy‘,.. their bottles made from recycled glass, and there’s more. Further reading ncnean.com. As far as I know, this is still the first independent bottling of Nc’Nean, so yet more kudos to TBWC.

    C: Perhaps it’s the provenance of Nc’nean that we should be focusing on, more than its young maturing spirit in the developmental stages. As Malt-Review says ‘,… things get interesting when we see the beginnings of a core range. This is what a new distillery will be built and judged upon‘. That said, I find this independent release very botanical aqvavitae/genever-like. It’s a bottle I’m only likely to grab off the shelf if I’d had one too many, or have guests who like gin. It’s pricey too [50cl bottles remember]. Of course, it’s uber-popular amongst the many.
