Teaninich 1984 (bottled 1996) - Lombard 700ml
A 1984 vintage Teaninich, which then rested in a pair of casks until 1996, when it was independently bottled by Lombard at 40% ABV. The cask type in which it was matured in is a mystery, though perhaps the tasty flavour profile of the Highlander will be able to give us a clue.
Nose: Fresh pancakes with lemon juice and a sprinkle of sugar, floral honey, clove, forest aromas and ripe pear.
Palate: Peaches and honey, earthy oak, bananas and ice cream, pine nut, orange oil and a mineral backbone.
Finish: Floral peony, even more banana, cinnamon bun and orchard fruit.
