Teaninich 11 Year Old from The Single Malts of Scotland Cask Range: Single casks bottled at cask strength. This particular expression is from Hogshead Cask #715790 which was distilled in 2008 and bottled at Cask Strength in 2020 at 11 years old: the outturn was 313 bottles. The result is a gorgeously fresh and earthy dram, with a slight undertone of bitterness that provides for an interesting kick on the palate. No added colour and no chill-filtration.

Freshly-cut hay appears instantly, with an accompaniment of juniper berries lending an earthy sweetness. Elderflower drizzle cake and a juicy kiwi generously sweeten,while a flurry of crunchy autumn leaves contributes more rustic aromas.
Sweeter on the palate than on the nose, with a silky quality, akin to butterscotch sauce and muscovado syrup. Bitterness elbows in, in the form of grapefruit juice - but when held longer on the palate.
The earthy sweetness evident on the nose reappears and lingers – this time, it’s maple syrup drizzled on crispy granola. A warming tanginess rests on, with raw heather honey and yoghurt-covered cranberries.
