Teaninich 17 Year Old 1999 Vintage Bicentenary Release 2017 (70cl, 55.9%)
A very rare official Teaninich distilled in 1999, this was released in 2017 as part of Diageo's special releases to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the distillery. Drawn from refill American oak hogsheads and sherry butts, both filled in 1999, the Teaninich distillery uses an unusual mash filter press instead of a mash tun in production.
Teaninich was built in the early 19th century and was eventually bought by blenders, Munro & Cameron, in 1895. Their trustees later sold the distillery to DCL in 1933, and it remains part of the Diageo operation to this day. The distillery's primary focus is on provision for the firms many blends, and the 10 year old Flora & Fauna has been the only permanent distillery bottling, with just a handful of rare official releases appearing alongside it over the years.
