1 bottle Teaninich 1993 – 2005 11 Year Old. Scotch Malt Whisky Society 59.30.please note there is no box.
Really punchy, powerful, starting on something very winey, feinty, minty and sulphury at the same time. Probably not very academic, to say the least, but I must say this strange mixture produces rather interesting results. Notes of rubber (band), hot milk, beer, Indian yoghurt and these funny notes of spearmint flying over the whole, plus quite some apple juice and freshly cut grass.
Starts on apple compote and cider, aniseed, dill, getting quite ‘leguminous’ (celeriac, salsify).
It gets much more bitter after a moment, though (very strong liquorice, salmiak and has a long, ‘mentholated’ finish
