Teaninich (pronounced ‘tee-ninick’) distillery is one of those distilleries you have probably never heard of, because very little is released as a single malt. It is located a just north of Inverness, not far from Dalmore and Glenmorangie, on the Cromarty Firth which is apparently the playground of dolphins, or so it says on the label of this only official release as part of Diageo’s "flora and fauna" range. Maybe more highland than coastal in taste, we absolutely loved it.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Grapey. Dusty. Chocolate limes. Nutty and green fruits. A wisp of smoke
Palate: An earthy, grapey creaminess. Light peppery vanilla. Limes and fruit salad chews. On the finish, cape gooseberries.
