    I remember trying this in store and really liking it...Enough to buy a bottle at least, so here we are.

    Ah yes, it’s just my style. It’s old school, which is to say - it hasn’t been finished in something. It’s naked whisky, the way Mother Nature intended. It’s very malty. Citrus cakes, barley sugars, green teas. A great sense of distillate and balance... I know why I bought a bottle

      Lemon pound cake, thick malty aromas, barley sugars, a clean sense of the wort. Vanilla bean, tapioca. Pine needles and green tea. Against the consensus here, I think this is really nice distillate driven whisky. It’s very malty, and I love that.

      Lemon cake, vanilla ice cream, orange cream. It’s very creamy, very citrusy and malty. Orange sherbet. Great mouthfeel. Nothing crazy, but I like that it hasn’t been blasted by sherry or something. Au natural.

      barley sugars, citrus cakes, tapioca, vanilla. More orange sherbet. Green tea. Malty and thick. Not going to blast your palate but I really enjoy the thick and rich flavours.

      Like walking in the dry forest, smelling grass and tree bark. Very austere.

      Soft. There's ginger, lemongrass, dried herbs. There's some sweetness in the form of unripened pear and perhaps daikon.

      Actually pretty nice. Quite balanced to be honest. But nothing to really write home about.

    Very mineral with limestone, crushed mussel shells, wet rock that dries in the sun, moss. Moist forest floor and pine needles. Something sour, gooseberry. Grapes.
    It is as angular and difficult to access as it sounds.

    More sweet in the mouth, honey and grapes. Mineral-earthy notes also dominate here. Tree bark, licorice to chew on. Gooseberries. A little apricot.

    Hardly sweet, earthy here either.


    Conclusion: a little attractive profile, but I like it quite well. It is the total antithesis to vanilla sweetness or the bottlings slain with sherry or wine that many followers have

    Today I try my second Teaninich. The only other one I had was quite good. Let's see how this tastes.

    The nose starts out with barley sugar, then lemon bread, some grass, faint aroma of pine needles, hint of baking spices.

    Palate continues with barley sugars, then grass, then some weak candied ginger notes, hints of lemon bread dipped in tea.

    The finish carries the candied ginger note but it amplifies over the palate with more ginger and less sweetness, mild bitter tea note which is not distracting, some lemon zest.

    Not a bad whisky per se but kind of lacks integration and balance
