From the Teaninich Distillery and aged 29 years in a hogshead, this single cask, bottling at natural strength without chill filtration or the addition of caramel. Only 201 bottles were produced.
Sampled on 18/02/2012
Clear, pale golden yellow.
Lightly peaty/earthy, linseed oil smoked chamois leather with candied fruit, root ginger, cloves and a dusting of cinnamon.
Delicately spicy, surprisingly honeyed malty palate with nubuck leather and herbal woody notes. A touch of bitter grassy tannins about the only thing that betrays this malt's advanced years.
The finish perfectly suits the Winter Spice description, but delicately so.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
