Teaninich 10 Year Old Flora & Fauna Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
A well rounded Highland single malt whisky with light salty flavours making a fine apéritif. A crisp, dry and appetising malt that starts fresh and orange-sweet with a long and dry finish.
Serving Suggestion: Teaninich works best served in a traditional whisky glass, neat or with a little water.
Mid gold, almost buttery.
Light to medium body, crisp and mouth-cleansing.
The first impression is fresh and citric (oranges and lemons), with a background scent of violets, which rises then falls. It is replaced by concentrated orange juice and old oranges. There are some very light cereal notes (cornflakes?) in the background. The overall impression is clean and appetising. Softens and dulcifies when water is added. Becomes more scented - clover flowers - but still upon a base of orange juice. There is also a whiff of beeswax.
Light and sweetish, but overall dry with pleasant acidity and even a pinch of salt.
Long and dry. The beeswax returns in the aftertaste.
