  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    N: Not so blatant as the previous Teaninich WB, but goes along similar lines. It's strong [like the 1974 Mannochmore WB] and at 57.9% it's no surprise really. Some apples<pears but it's the strength>astringent malt that speaks loudest, even with water. It's peppery with some cloves and even some onion. It's really strong, ok.
    T: Yeah, rawr!!,.... and robust plus [just like the Mannochmore], with massive, uncompromising power. Those apples on the nose come through with the crusty crust of short-crust pastry on top. Then come sour notes touching bitterness but on the front of the tongue - so this is no easy pleaser, you have to work at it. There's more onion-malt and then a deep sour.
    F: Still astringent to the last and a little raw. Being far younger than the previous 22yo WB, it's [only] 13yo and it shows.
    C:What a contrast to the 22yo. This is an 'immediate' malt, one that feels like the spirit is still 'receiving'. It's hard to overcome that deep sour. Let's move along, again with Teaninich and an even earlier vintage WB.

    He starts very alcoholic on the nose without having. My nose hairs are almost burned. In the mouth it's the same without water. Alcohol is too dominant. After qq drops of water there is balance. Now it's sweet, slightly fruity, a little peaty (?), A little mint too but lacks a bit of complexity. It's too monotonous. It's a good Teaninich, but it's not great either.

    EDIT: It gets better and better with the number of drops of water that I add. The last drop of Teaninich is very nice, but still not very complex. It's just very good.
