What they say
Here we have a tasty Teaninich, aged for 10 years and then independently bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company. The label hints at quite an intense story of Teaninich founder Captain Hugh Munro, who lost an eye in battle and then wasn’t allowed to marry the woman he was betrothed to. Told you it was intense.
Batch 3 is a release of 2,893 bottles.
Official tasting notes
- Nose: Applesauce, dried pear and toasted barley initially, followed by walnut husk, spiced oak and seeded wholemeal loaf.
- Palate: More brown bread with honey and marmalade notes lead among aromatic winter spice and some creamy, nutty elements.
- Finish: Lingering orchard fruit sweetness.
- Overall: A whisky of balance and a fine blend of flavours.

My tasting notes
- Appearance White wine gold (4/20) slow, medium-fine tears and medium legs.
- Nose Lots of vanilla, really sweet and fragrant, touch sticky, fairy cakes, soft apple, biscuit, Portugese custard tarts, banana and almonds.
- Taste Sweet and sugary, light-medium bodied, toasty woody oak, apple, banana, toasted flaked almonds, a touch oily and buttery.
- Finish Medium-short iced gingerbread.
- Overall A very sweet and dessert-like expression from Teaninich, still a touch spirity and feisty but this adds a little interest to the palate and to the overall enjoyment.
