Teaninich 15 Year Old (2007) Single Cask #1903083 / Berry Bros & Rudd
56.3% ABV (Cask Strength)
1 of 525 Bottles initially matured in a Hogshead and then finished in an Oloroso Sherry Butt
It says "Christmas Edition" on the label but remember, whisky is not just for Christmas!
This Highland single malt was matured in a refill sherry butt before being given a final two years maturing in a fresh Oloroso butt. The sherry wood is quite restrained on the nose with the fruity distillate displaying a mouthwatering array of zesty green fruit notes, the palate however leaves one in no doubt of the sherry maturation with thick dried figs and raisins mingling beautifully with grated apple and lashings of honey. A little water brings out bursts of wood spice and some of the citrus promised on the nose. Vibrant and fresh, a wonderful conversational dram.
