Whisky Magazine, Issue 132
Nose: A ripe nose of peach, crepe suzette, blood orange, heather honey, Golden Syrup and freshly cut pine. A hint of agave syrup in there too.
Palate: Fantastically drinkable especially at the bottling strength of 40% ABV, the peach notes of the nose are turned up to 11, backed up by fluffy whipped cream, some strawberries and just a hint of light oak. Light like a grain but with the body of a malt.
Finish: Amazingly well balanced with white flower and cinnamon and apple doughnuts.
Comments: Wonderfull, fantastically, amazingly well made whisky. Well done.
Review by Chris – 8.2 POINTS
Nose: Succulent aromas of barley, honey and plenty of apricot, pineapple and melon. Wonderfully aromatic and fruity with a touch of vanilla oak and some freshening citrus and herbal notes.
Palate: More milky, vanilla oak which has the gently tropical fruit and honey in a vice-like grip. A hint of citrus and minerality tries to balance.
Finish: Short and austere with a late juiciness.
"Ooooooh, Nelly- we just love to try something a little lesser known. TEANINCH When we waved this under our beaks we couldn't help but exclaiming, "Wow- this is different!" This straw colored spirit is robust, grassy, shows honey, bananas, along with earth and iodine. A real tour of flavors, for sure. Magnificent balance between the gentler floral and fruity notes and the earthy and iodine one. Yum! (Rating ****1/4)"
