Teaninich 10yo [2005] Ob. ‘Flora & Fauna’ 43%

Remarkably, there have only been eight official distillery releases of Teaninich since it’s establishment in 1817 – nearly 200 years ago. This Flora ’n’ fauna bottling is currently (and still) the only available & affordable distillery bottling, priced at £43 (Oct ’16].

  • N: It’s got quite a Speyside character for a Highlander, not that the distillery is many miles away from the region. Very floral and fruity [oranges] in the main.
  • T: Nutty, sweet grain with dried orange fruits and pears later
  • F: ….. then a waxy, spicy fade into a soft & mild grain finish, Plums at the death and ultimately a residue of gritty grain.
  • C: Another session dram but one that fails to ‘Catch a fire’ – nice but unforgettable. The nose lives up to it’s name though, it’s so flora[l].
