Launched as part of Diageo's now discontinued Flora & Fauna range. Created in the early 1990s by United Distillers Vintners (what would later become Diageo), this range initially had no name and it was only when famous whisky writer Michael Jackson nicknamed it the 'Flora and Fauna' series (after the bottles’ wildlife themed labels) did it stick. This Teaninich 10yo is a rare release from the Highlands distillery which mainly produces malts for blending, and is used in Johnnie Walker Red Label. Bottled at 43%.
Nose: The first impression is fresh and citric (oranges and lemons), with a background scent of violets, which rises then falls. It is replaced by concentrated orange juice and old oranges. There are some very light cereal notes (cornflakes?) in the background. The overall impression is clean and appetising.
Palate: Light and sweetish, but overall dry with pleasant acidity and even a pinch of salt.
Finish: Long and dry. The beeswax returns in the aftertaste.
