Teaninich 1999 17 YO Special Releases 2017
Released during the distillery’s 200th year, this Highland single malt was distilled before Teaninich underwent significant expansion. Reflecting its older style of production, the whisky makes an excellent aperitif or a partner to Asian cuisine. Initially sweet and zesty, this dram layers herbal notes under its toffee, lemon and apple flavours.
Rhubarb-and-custard sweets, sherbert lemons, green leaves and a lick of oak spice. Apples, pears and hints of nectarine follow, with spun sugar gently placed on top. Water adds a spritz of zest: lemony citrus and sharp apples.
A big hit of syrupy sweetness kicks things off, following by caramel and candied lemons. Herbal notes creep in along with butter toffee and Granny Smith toffee apples. Water adds in layers of caramel, a hint of cider toffee, more cream and lemon.
Lingering bakes apples die away, leaving behind lemon oil and freshly sawn oak.
