Teeling Vintage Reserve Silver 21 Year Old Tasting Notes

Producer's Tasting Notes:
Non chill-filtered and bottled at 46% ABV.

Colour: Bright gold in colour.

Nose: Aromas of white grapes, cut grass, apricots, pears, beeswax, and white chocolate. The impression is of soft fruitiness and complexity.

Taste: Silky smooth, with more of the white grape character coming through at the start. It slowly becomes more honeyed. Flavours of greengage and fig jam, honey, quince jelly, apricots and white chocolate. Complex yet smooth and light.

Finish: Long, mellow, and warmly joyful, with a light, peppery afterglow and a toffee aftertaste.
