This 17 Year Old Special Release from the east coast highland distillery, Teaninich, has received widespread praise from whisky specialists the world over. Matured in oak hogsheads and sherry butts the palate is particularly zesty, with a sweet, gentle oak finish, perfect as an aperitif with those whose conversation you savour.
Flavour Profile: Nose
Opening with citrus fruits the palate is friendly & approachable. There's a spicier edge in the shadows, speaking of cinnamon & nutmeg, which opens the door for the late entrance of almond & vanilla.
Flavour Profile: Palate
The initial buzz of citrus is swept away with a prickle of spice & lemon cake. A sharper oak takes shape giving weight to a hint of wine gum & ripened fruit.
Flavour Profile: Finish
A long, warming finish that reflects stewed peach, spicy oakwood, a pinch of white pepper and leaves a delectable brown sugar sweetness.
