1975 Claxton's Dalswinton Series Teaninich 45 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
To our knowledge, this is the oldest Teaninich ever bottled. Claxton's is also notable for being drawn from a sherry hogshead - unusual for a Teaninich - aiming to deliver a fine balance of fruit and spices creating a complexity typical of this region.
One of the earlier legal distilleries, Teaninich was built in 1817 by Captain Hugo Munro and was later sold to his younger brother, John Munro, in 1831. The distillery was leased for several years to various parties before being bought by Robert Innes Cameron in 1904. Following his death, Cameron’s estate sold the distillery to Distillers Company Ltd. In the 1970’s, Teaninich underwent a number of renovations including a new six still set-up called “Teaninich A Side” as well as a dark grain plant. Fast forward to 2000 and “A side” is fitted with a mash filter; in 2013, Diageo announced a renovation for a new distillery placed next to the old distillery to produce a separate whisky. 49.3% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
Notes from the bottlers... Nose: Mineral-chalky. Sweet with dried fruits. Hints of tobacco and sweet Shisha smoke. Palate: Soft fruits at first with dried apricot and apple. Subtle spices and again sweet tobacco. Finish: Satisfyingly sweet and oaky with more soft spices in the aftertaste.
