Nc'nean Organic Whisky Tasting Notes
Ed's tasting notes
Nose: Gentle, with sweet notes in the form of honey and caramel. Fruit notes of peaches, oranges and bananas. I get some sweet malt, and a gentle vanilla note, perhaps from the ex-bourbon casks. The alcohol is well integrated with no prickle.
Palate: A nice, creamy mouthfeel, with well-integrated alcohol. More sweet malt with plenty of fruit - peaches, apricots and bananas. And a few extra citrus notes, lemon and lime. There’s a nice wood spice, perhaps this time from the red wine barriques.
Finish: A medium finish with that fruit from the palate continuing onto the finish, together with a touch of warming spice.
