Teaninich / Morrison & Mackay

Teaninich 10 Year Old Carn Mor Strictly Limited (Morrison and Mackay) Review

Teaninich 10 Year Old Carn Mor Strictly Limited (Morrison and Mackay) Teaninich, which is still a distillery i struggle to say properly, tends to be used for blends so finding single malts tend to be from independent bottlers like this example of 720 bottles from 2 hogsheads.

I've had a few Teaninich and generally i get a woody element in all of them and thats the same here today with a woody element definitely clear on the palate. The nose and rest of the palate have a real fruity, sweet, chilli, yummy element also and this really is a very interesting dram indeed.

At around £40-60 a bottle these Carn Mor Strictly limited bottlings are brilliant value for money and the whisky is generally damn good also. Hunt out some Teaninich to try and make sure you check out the other drams available from the Carn Mor range also.

Sold out everywhere i can see but keep an eye on specialists like Master of Malt for more from this range.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Theres a really creamy note first off the bat on this one then a slightly sour pear note, almost pear drops but not quite as sweet, a hint of cooked scones with a twist of lemon zest through them, and a light hint of char, in the background is a sweet fruity note thats like the flavour of haribo tangtastics after you've licked off the sour sugar.

Palate

Oh this is tasty, there's an woody element that adds a tang of spice across the tongue (light ground white pepper) and a touch of sweet chilli jam, those licked clean haribo tangtastics and that sour pear note yet again with vanilla cream hiding in there also.

Finish

Tangy sweet chilli jam and vanilla cream
