Product details

Relatively new (in Scotch whisky terms), Nc’Nean (pronounced ‘nook-knee-anne’) was founded in March 2017 and became the first fully organic modern distillery in Scotland powered by 100% renewable energy! This is the third seasonal release from its Autumn series, Quiet Rebels, which celebrates the humans behind the whisky. For this edition, blender Matt Hastings asked distillery manager Gordon to pick his favourite casks.

Created to be an oily, decadent whisky, the bulk of the blend (74%) is made up of STR (shaved, toasted, and re-charred) red wine casks, bringing jammy dried fruits and a little herbal spice. Then 19% oloroso sherry butts bring Christmas cake spices, and just 7% Rivesaultes casks (a French sweet red wine) add some tropical fruit acidity. In the core Nc’nean releases, just 2% oloroso casks are used, so this is a much fruitier, spicier take from the distillery.
