Teaninich 17 Year Old 2017 Special Release
70cl / 55.9% abv
Part of the Diageo 2017 Special Releases, this Highland single malt was distilled at Teaninich in 1999 before being filled to refill American oak hogsheads and Amoroso sherry butts to mature for 17 years. Only available in limited quantities worldwide at a cask strength of 55.9% abv.
Nose: citrus fruits to the fore with pear, mandarin and lemon sherbet, before a spicier cinnamon and nutmeg influence, followed by vanilla toffee and creamy fudge.
Palate: sweet fondant cream and a prickle of spice, with lemon drizzle cake and sharper oak notes fading to wine gum and lemon zest.
Finish: long and warming with a touch of white pepper and lingering candied sweetness.
