One of the Old Malt Cask 20th Anniversary releases, distilled in 1999, it was bottled after 19 years in a Refill Hogshead at 50%.
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: creamy, exotic, tropical and fruity; decadent with the nose feel of a much older malt; white fruits, mango, papaya and agave nectar; crepes with a touch of powdered sugar and lemon juice.
Palate: soft, creamy and floral; beeswax and tallow candles; more tropical fruits (mango and papaya), dulce de leche and agave nectar; classic thin French crepes with powdered sugar and lemon juice.
Finish: medium-long, coating, creamy, sweet, fruity, toasty and floral... I think that's everything; lots going on here.
Comment: this is very Littlemill-esque; perhaps not quite as waxy, or as linseed-y; this is a fantatic malt, a fine selection to mark Old Malt Casks 20th Anniversary, and one of the best Teaninichs I've ever had!
Producer’s Tasting Note
Nose: Chocolate fudge, cherries, and apples.
Palate: Spicy, with notes of milk chocolate and nuts.
Finish: Long, with lingering spice.
Teaninich Distillery has been around since 1817 and is one of a handful of single malt distilleries in Scotland that can boast about being able to produce more than 10 million litres of alcohol per year. This is made all the more impressive when you consider how unknown it is.
Owned by the behemoth of the Scotch Whisky industry known as Diageo, Teaninich is not a household name when it comes to Single Malt Scotch even though it is the company’s third-largest malt distillery. That is mostly down to the fact that most of its production is set aside for use in blends such as Johnnie Walker, Vat 69 and Haig.
