Single Malts of Scotland 12 year old (Distilled at Teaninich) 2008, 57.7%

Price: $140 Issue: Fall 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

The vapors deliver vibrant bright citrus notes to the olfactory senses, replete with zested lime, mandarin, floral and grassy notes, pressed linen, and grapefruit, developing into aromas of white peach. The palate revolves around a honeyed-citrus theme, plus sugared almonds, pepper, and ginger, and becomes creamy in time. Decent, if familiar territory for this Highland distillery.
