Whisky Reviews for Nc'nean Organic Single Malt

  1. Myke scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Again emphasized fruity on the nose, slight sweetness in beautiful harmony with sour notes of grapes. With a little time, floral moments too.
    The taste is then more on the sour side and slightly tart notes.
    Personally, I found Batch 6 to be better because it was more sweet and more balanced; here the sour note is more dominant in the taste and pulls the malt in this direction.
    Nonetheless, a successful batch again, even if it does not get to batch 6 in my opinion.
    Slowly it crystallizes * for me * that the "even" batches (2,4,6) are always a tad better than the odd ones (1,3,5,7) - so I'm looking forward to batch 8.
    [86 - 82 = good whisky -> get a second bottle? Perhaps...]
    • Nose
      89 89
      light fruity notes of apricot, pear and yellow-green apple; everything underlined with a slight sweetness.
      Dried banana chips, slight acidity from juicy pineapple (I haven't had that in previous batches).
      Red grapes, slightly sweet, but also with slightly sour nuances.
      Vanilla aroma together with a light honey and caramel note. Becomes sweeter over time and something floral also spreads.
      A little spice of cinnamon in the background. There is also a very light malt sweetness.
      In the nose there is also a refreshing alcoholic freshness from time to time - then you notice the youth again; but is very limited and the alcohol is well integrated.
    • Taste
      85 85
      first gently at the start, then a spice of white pepper and nutmeg quickly builds up. It quickly turns into a creamy, viscous mouthfeel.
      The fruit no longer looks quite so sweet, the sour notes are more in focus and a slightly tart note also spreads, but without drifting into a bitterness.
      Second sip: sweeter (powdered sugar), (green) fruity, more (green) grape notes. However, the sweetness cannot keep up with the sour notes - an "imbalance" remains.
    • Finish
      80 80
      the weakest part of this malt: the slight acidity of the fruit remains for a medium time, the bitter note (dark chocolate) remains for a while longer.
      In three years, however, nothing else to be expected.

    Very promising for one so young…definitely one to watch!
