Teaninnich 12 Years Old 2006 Bourbon Cask Spirit Shop Selection Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml
By Sansibar & Spirit Shop Selection
SKU code: 12201
This is a 12 year old release from the Teanninich distillery. Distilled in 2006, matured in a bourbon hogshead and bottled at 54.9% Abv, it comes as part of a collaboration between the bottler Spirit Shop in Taiwan and Sansibar from Germany.
A very mysterious distillery, Teanninich was established in 1817 by Hugh Munro on his estate of Teanninich Castle.The distillery changed hands a number of times and was closed throughout the 2nd world war, but has been owned by DCL (now Diageo) since 1933. It saw a major expansion in 1970 with the installation of 6 stills, new buildings and entirely new equipment installed. It was temporarily mothballed from 1985 to 1991. Much of Teanninich’s 10 million litre output is used in Diageo’s flagship blend Johnnie Walker as well as the dimple blend. There has only ever been 1 official bottling in the form of a 10 year old Flora and Fauna release that debuted in 1992. Despite the high yearly output, it’s very rare to see Teaninich available as a single malt at all, with the only modern offerings coming from independent bottlers.
