Product Description

Exclusive to The Whisky Exchange, this single cask whisky is made from organic Scottish barley and fermented for up to 114 hours to create a high-ester spirit brimming with flavour. It was matured in a first-fill ex-bourbon cask before being finished in an ex-Tequila cask, imparting green, floral and vegetal aromas of Padron peppers, wildflowers and citrus on the nose. This is followed by a rich, creamy texture with notes of lemon curd, tinned peaches, cracked white pepper and nutmeg on the palate.

Crafted Slowly

This bottling is part of the Aon collection – meaning 'one' in Gaelic – which comprises hand-picked single casks of unique character. Though Nc'nean's rise to prominence has been remarkably rapid, at the distillery itself they like to take things slow. This applies to malting organic Scottish barley, fermenting with high-ester yielding yeast, and distilling slowly – which allows for more copper contact and results in a clean and fruity new-make spirit. For this release, that spirit was aged in a first-fill bourbon barrel and then matured for an additional two years in an ex-Tequila cask, which has added a subtle vegetal character to the whisky.

Made by Nature

Nc’nean distillery is nestled on the wild west coast of Scotland. Its picturesque surroundings give inspiration to its beautiful bottles, which are made with 100% recycled glass and adorned with local Scottish flora. Once you scratch beyond the vibrant surface, you’ll find a distillery that does business in accordance with its values – a fact best illustrated by its rigorous approach to sustainability and B Corp certification. Happily, Nc’nean delivers on flavour too, showing us that great whisky doesn’t need to be hard on the planet.
