Nc’nean Quiet Rebels Annabel

nc-nean-quiet-rebels-annabel-whisky

Fairly well structured, displays some youthful spirit as you would expect for 3-4 year old whisky. There was more than a hint of cardboard I associate with STR casks added to the woody element here. This has clearly been well put together from the cask selection to final product. I’d be interested to see how Nc’nean improves with age. 83/100

Beinn Dubh

beinn-dubh-the-black-whisky

Enjoyable but perhaps doesn’t quite deliver what you would expect from the colour. This still has that classic Speyside distillery medium-light spirit style. Plenty of fruit and chocolate from the cask maturation and later some tannins and pleasant spices keep things interesting. 84/100
