77
Nose
Lightly toasty. Slight smokiness. Fragrant. Very fresh.
Palate
Slightly chewy. And toffeeish. Distinctly fruity. Then peppery. Very lively.
Finish
Just a hint of appetising herbal bitterness. Gunpowder tea?
Comment
Not much subtlety, but I always enjoy its big, confident, flavours.

Dave Broom

77
Nose
Tense and austere despite some malty sherried notes. Lightly floral, slightly green and grassy with nut (young Hunter Valley Semillon) roasted almond and hint of sappy sawn timber.
Palate
Subtle dryness with light seashore aromas, moss and some sherry slickness mid-palate. Lean.
Finish
Decent weight if a little short.
Comment
A good Teaninich, austere, grassy yet with an extra dimension.
