    • Nose
      warm and fruity. A lot of red apples mixed with peppermint. Dissolved honey in the company of the fine oak. Clash between apricots, mirabelles and herbs and dried tea. Spicy aroma with traces of acetone. Dry hay and vanilla pod. In the background olive oil. Really oldschool aroma.
    • Taste
      oily, nicely spicy. Nice mix between citruses, wax and paraffin. Further clear apples, a bit of smoke, dried herbs, vanilla. A lot of bitter red grapefruit. Lovely continuation of aroma.
    • Finish
      spices and citruses, fresh tobacco leafs, oak bitternes and pleasantly salty at the end. Long.

  6. gregy3 scored this whisky 90 points Newbie

    Very intense and lively, both on the nose and Palate! If you just recently obtained this bottle, the best way to taste it, is to add a teaspoon of water!

  7. sagara-kun scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Rather pretty and balanced for an RM. Nice complexity and a lot of distillate expression.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, lemon candy, old book, dust, beet, banana, cranberry syrup.
      Syrup takes a lot of space here. It almost feels like having it on a lollipop.
      Mint.
    • Taste
      In the mouth we have mint, flowers, chalk, mineral, salt, apple, citrus, lemon, zest, wood, mandarin.
      Rather balanced and successful.
    • Finish
      Finale on salt, citrus (orange, lemon, grapefruit), wood, mineral, pebble.

  8. z-imaging scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Powerful and very Teaninich. Clean, mineral, almost antiseptic (bleach?), fresh oak and very delicate smoke, autumn leafs. Thick oily body, crisp & clean, sweet, hot, chili. Swims well, water is mandatory. Quite long finish, still hot, very delicate bitterness, oak.

  9. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    In two respects Teaninich typical, on the one hand the basic character with the dusty-dry, on the other hand exciting, but not for every week what.
    • Nose
      Dusty, in any case consistent with other Teaninich in the basic character, lead, chalk, ginger, fennel, cress, caper, olives, honey, nutmeg
    • Taste
      Much nice, sweet and crisp malt, walnuts, chestnut, rough leather, a little bit of BBQ, salted caramel, marzipan, furniture polish, anise, some tobacco
    • Finish
      Dry, mineral-leathery, malt, dry caramel, tobacco, medium to long

    3rd row nevertheless great stuff - for me much better than eg the Banff from the Raremalts series
    • Nose
      92 92
      sweet and delicate malty with fine old taliskereskem wood smoke, exciting flower aromas with lots of honey, nutmeg, cinnamon, cut flower stems, geranium leaves, beeswax, caramel and vanilla, the nose is getting better in the glass, you may drink no more
    • Taste
      91 91
      Wood oil, furniture polish, Bergamottetee, very noble partly crystalline citrus aromas that pass over again and again in flower aromas, aniseed, old wood, shoe polish, some licorice, licorice, mint, tobacco, baking cocoa, vanilla pudding

      all combined with a subtle delicious sweetness, lively, aromatic - extremely elegant, the alcohol feels like spicy 43%
    • Finish
      91 91
      elegant, spicy, very vibrant on the finish - the aromas all dance long on the tongue

  16. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Sprightly and spirity nose when initially poured and without water. A few drops of water and a bit of time in the glass tamed it greatly though, releasing some lovely sharp citrus fruits and ripe orchard fruits (apples and pears) alongside more industrial notes (engine oil, dunnage warehouses, and a hint of coal smoke). A bit more time in the glass let through notes of ground coffee beans and creamy honey. Very nice, unique profile on the nose then, that definitely benefited from time and H2O! Lots of character and complexity on the palate too, with the fruity notes from the nose joined by some spicy chilli pepper, wisps of smoke and a slightly drying woody edge that enhances, rather than detracts, from the profile. Long, spicy and warming finish. I really enjoyed this dram and would happily seek out a bottle if it wasn't so expensive now. Another great selection from the Rare Malts series.
