Teaninich 2010 Tawny Port Tasting Notes

Mike's tasting notes

Teaninich embraces its Tawny Port partner. Together the two sparkle and shine, revealing fresh apples with crisp malt and layers of luscious fruit and berries. Facets of initial rich berries reflect the sheen of cereal oak and a hint of bitter-sweet fruit. Firkin Rare indeed!

About this Firkin Rare Whisky

To create this Rare expression, Mike Collings started with a single ex-bourbon cask of Teaninich, distilled in 2010. He then gave it a second maturation in one of his custom double-oak casks. These are hand-made by a skilled cooper from ex-bourbon staves combined with virgin French oak. The resulting double-oak cask is then soaked with Tawny port, so that the wood takes up the Port's rich fruity flavours. The Teaninich was finally added, and left to slumber until it was just perfect.

Meet the Founder

Mike Collings

Mike Collings could have retired with an incredible track record in whisky. He had created Johnnie Walker Blue & Green Labels, The Classic Malts, Rare Malts, Distillers Edition, Flora & Fauna series, Cardhu and Royal Lochnagar. That’s pretty good as far as CVs go.

He’s been working in whisky for 40 years. You couldn’t blame him for packing it in and putting his feet up. That would have been the sensible thing to do. But Mike is many things. Sensible isn’t one of them. Mike stirs the pot. He thinks about things differently and always asks: ‘what if …’

So, he found himself enjoying a few drams in a Tokyo bar thinking: what if I created a whisky that was unique on the single cask single malt market.

So he did. And it's Firkin awesome whisky.
