Teaninich ("tun-NEE-nick") was founded in 1817 by Napoleonic war hero, Hugh Munro. At a time when countless poor farmers could be forcibly evicted by landlords to make way for more profitable ventures (see the early history of Brora Distillery), Munro was celebrated for being a benevolent estate owner. He advocated for the common folk with the authorities, and even established the said distillery to provide gainful employment.
The modern Teaninich Distillery has some of the most advanced equipment in the Scotch industry. It remains the only Scotch malt distillery that uses a hammer mill and mash filter. This process produces highly refined malt extract, giving the resulting spirit a meadow-like grassiness and floral notes reminiscent of Jasmine tea. Small, bulbous copper stills are used for distillation, leading to a pleasant waxy texture.
This expression is unusual for being matured in an Ex-Laphroaig Quarter Cask, adding a light layer of ash atop a palate of cream and honey. Makes for a great pairing with some grilled calamari and octopi.
Nose: Maltose, grain, juicy pear, grass, wheatgrass, whiff of peat and icing sugar
Palate: Creamy sweetness, sencha green tea, grated nutmeg, light ashiness followed by a honeyed buttery note
