Teaninich 17 Year Old
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Region

Coastal Highland

Appearance

Pale golden sunlight. Fine beading.

Nose

Approachable and gently drying. At first citrus-fruity and fragrant; succulent fruit, with honeysuckle and perfumed oak. Behind this there's a spicer edge, with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg then toffee apples, with a late suggestion of almonds. After a few minutes, sweet notes dominate, with candy and creamy fudge balanced by a softly spicy background.

Body

Medium. Rich and smooth texture.

Palate

Unctuous and sweet, suggesting a fondant cream with a spicy edge. An initial burst of citrus is swept away by candied sweetness and spiced porridge roll in. Notes of sharper oak then fade to reveal hints of wine gums.

Finish

Lengthy and warming with spicy oak-wood, a pinch of white pepper, lingering candied sweetness.

Information

Distillery: Teaninch

Age: 17 years old, distilled in 1999

Strength: 55.9% ABV

Place of Origin: Teaninich

Region: Coastal Highland

Palate

Unctuous and sweet, suggesting a fondant cream with a spicy edge. An initial burst of citrus is swept away by candied sweetness and a prickle of spice, before lemon cake, digestive biscuits and spiced porridge roll in. Notes of sharper oak then fade to reveal hints of wine gum and lemon zest. Water softens the candy sweetness; revealing more leafy notes, sweet and creamy toffee, and more orchard fruit; sweet apple and ripe pear.

Nose

Approachable and gently drying. At first citrus-fruity and fragrant; pears in syrup, lychees, mandarins and lemon sherbet, with honeysuckle and perfumed oak. Behind this there’s a spicier edge, with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg then toffee apples, green grass or moss and pastry, with a late suggestion of almonds. After a few minutes, sweet notes dominate, with candy, vanilla toffee and creamy fudge balanced by a softly spicy background. Adding a little water brings up more soft fudge.

Finish

Lengthy and warming with spicy oak-wood, a pinch of white pepper, lingering candied sweetness.
