Noble Rebel Orchard Burst Review

11th June 2024
Review of the Noble Rebel Orchard Outburst Scotch blended malt whisky and as it names suggests, it has a lovely intense orchard burst and those orchard fruits are given a delicious boost by the sugars and gentle spices.

Noble Rebel Orchard BurstThis is one of a trio of Scotch Blended Malt Whiskies launched by the Loch Lomond Group in early 2023 which make up the Noble Rebel Scotch Blended Malt Whisky range. At the heart of Noble Rebel blended malt whiskies are a blend of single malt whiskies which have been distilled at the Loch Lomond and Glen Scotia distilleries as well as whiskies from some undisclosed trusted partners of the Loch Lomond Group.

Noble Rebel Orchard Burst has been matured in American ex-bourbon casks. This intriguing malt contains whisky distilled with Chardonnay wine yeast, an unusual ingredient in whisky distillation which helps to intensify fruit and citrus flavours in the finished blend.

Bottled at 46% ABV, non-chill filtered and naturally coloured.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: A gentle sweet honey and vanilla mix infused with crisp green apple, ripe pear and a lovely touch of zesty lemon.

Taste: Apple and pear with a lovely very gentle barley sugared edge leads, closely followed by some lemon citrus, a little vanilla toffee and some lovely gentle oak spices.

Finish: The vanilla, apple and pear quickly peak and fade leaving some lovely gentle and now a little peppery oak spice to have the final word.

Comment: As it names suggests, a lovely intense orchard burst and those orchard fruits are given a delicious boost by the sugars and gentle spices, all served up at a flavoursome non-chill filtered, naturally coloured 46% ABV. A very smooth, very enjoyable, easy drinking dram, an ideal pour over the summer months or indeed anytime.
