Teaninich 17 years comes from the Highland region of Scotland. This brand is the first part of the Special Releases series. The maturation takes place in a hogshead of American oak. Nose: visible light and dry. The fragrance opens with citrus, pear, tangerine and honey. Various spices and toffee come forward later. Taste: sweet with a spicy edge. The palate opens with citrus, but this is soon replaced sweetened candies and spices. This is about lemon cake, biscuits and oak. Adding water creates multiple fruity notes, and more creamy taste. Finish: long and seasoned with pepper and sweets.
