An excellent indie bottling of Diageo workhorse distillery Teaninich by That Boutique-y Whisky Company.
A moreish whisky that is grain forward with soft citrus, growing baking spice and a clean, crisp finish of green apple.
The majority of this distillery's production is used for blends, but it is a real under-the-radar achiever in the hands on indies. A whisky drinker's whisky.
Of the label the bottlers say:
"Based on a true love story from many years ago about Captain Hugh Munro (founder of this distillery). He was shot in the head behind his eyes but, he survived! Unsurprisingly, he lost his eyesight as a result.
"His sweetheart was forbidden from marrying him due to his condition, so she married someone else. Despite their differing paths, she continued to love him and as her dying wish, visited the church to see him one last time."
