  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    An interesting drop. The nose is extremely velvety and creamy. The roasted and nut flavors are very dominant in the nose, as well as the heavy and dark sweetness. tastes flat then this blindsample something off, the extremely long Angang scores again with me. Even as I write my conclusion the heavy fruit and wood flavors rest forever on the palate and do not want to end.
    • Nose
      Blind tasting: Velvety, creamy roasted aromas and a touch of almonds stand out powerfully from the glass. Syrup-like drops flow oily into the glass after panning, dark and heavy fruit aromas end in dark orange and dried peaches. Forest honey and dark chewy caramel flow over chopped almonds and pieces of orange. Plums and cherries appear briefly, a hint of speculaas and almond biscuits exude their beguiling aroma. Here and there subtly tart fruit flavors, otherwise dominated by a heavy and fruity sweetness.
    • Taste
      Creamy and velvety, the first sip flows over the tongue. Acidic fruit flavors tear apart the otherwise sweetish fruit flavors. A slight pungency sets in, the sourish aromas seem a bit alien, wooden elements mix with almonds and hazelnuts. A hint of pepper and salt rise on the second sip and a peppery pungency gradually lapses over the tongue. Spicy and discreetly tart wood tones play with nuts and almonds, a dark, dried fruit note lies in the background. Chubby warm, the taste goes into the aftertaste.
    • Finish
      The slightly tingling sharpness still exudes their intense aroma while more and more show wood aromas and slowly transform into an aroma of wet leaves. Again slightly acidic fruit flavors rise up. For a long time, the delicious aromas envelop the palate in a cozy warmth, before the tingle on the inside of the cheek slowly fades and old and dry wood elements come into their own. However, the sour flavor is still very present.

  3. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    An interesting dry sherry whisky, deep enough, not to say that complex, but with a character, an obvious citrus-grain base, here and there piercing the influence of the barrel.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, old wood of noble breeds, lemonade, furniture varnish, gutalin, new leather goods, raisins, light ash notes.
    • Taste
      Thick, saturated, tart oak, furniture varnish, bitter coffee, raisins, bitter chocolate, toffee, cocoa, citrus-lemonade notes, corn.
    • Finish
      Spicy, sweet and sour, cocoa, bitter chocolate, raisins, prunes, burnt biscuits, leavened wort.

  4. ctu scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    It's a massive maturing, there's a mix of flavors here.
    • Nose
      Varnished wood, waxy fruits, banana, marzipan, apricot jam, orange peel and sour cream. Horseradish and rubber.
    • Taste
      Powerful, sweet and spicy. Honey, milk caramel, vanilla, fruits, ginger and wasabi.
    • Finish
      Long, bittersweet, fruity.

  5. malthead-1984 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    TOP Malt and has cracked the 90!
    • Nose
      Very nice fruity but light nose, the sherry fruit is getting more and more. clear church date mixture which is very pleasing. soft and oily in the nose, no stinging or alcoholic spiciness. a velvety mirabelle whizzes by. really nice and harmonious
    • Taste
      light and yet with a good start, it runs on the tongue, later oily with the pepper-ripe date on the tongue, nuts and delicate roasted aromas work their way. then the fruitiness comes back to the tongue
    • Finish
      The aftertaste is warming with expresso and chocolate. Again and again, the fruits flash through and form an interplay with the coffee aromas. long finish

    N: This is malt #9 and one that stands out. Notes of cherry-apricot fudge,... hmm more toffee actually, soft toffee. Teaninich often reminds me most of another 'off the radar' distillery, Inchgower - with its equally malty character. A little [sherried] cough syrup with the emphasis on the syrup in the main. It becomes even more syrup like - apricot syrup, grape syrup. A really pleasing, very sweet nose.
    T: More sweetness in the form of syrup & honey-[pancake toppings]-sweet than turns boozy,..... then more towards molasses - really boozy molasses. Some burnt spirit notes [rushed/over cut distillate?], turning boozy again - toffee boozy with a little tyre and butterscotch molasses [a la Strathclyde].
    F: Kind of quirky and still kinda desirable and chewy with some bitterness - black treacle-like. Ok, it falls on its face a little but hey, I've won athletics medals that way [true story]. Draff notes at the death - that’s fine.
    C: I can see why Teaninich is on that 'off the radar' radar, just don't let Diageo know we know. Let's stay with Teaninich and go older yet younger WB.

  9. Nickolaas scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Smell: sherry influences (something from raisins / farm boys, dried dates) some glue, some nutty, orange fruit (orange).

    Taste: sherry influences mixed with fine fruity notes (again I taste orange fruit-like sjizzel).

    Finish: sweet, good, fruit. Really a delicious whisky. HWF VBT 8 # 4

  10. Iron Lung scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Not exactly what I expected or hoped for, but really good for an All Day Dram.
    These floral notes remind me a little of a Littlemill, although these are not as pronounced in this malt as in a LM.
    Tortz all, in my opinion after still well deserved 87 points.
    • Nose
      light sherry sweet, nutty, also a little floral, after flowers, slightly meadow, freshly pressed orange
    • Taste
      The malt can not hide the 51.9%, pepper, spicy, orange, but also here are the floral notes
    • Finish
      Grassy, ​​meadow, flowers, pepper and a distinct spiciness.
