This Teaninich single malt was distilled in 1983 and matured for 34 years in cask #6728. It was bottled in 2018 by the independent bottler Adelphi for their Limited series. Only 190 bottles of Teaninich 1983 were released. The Highland distillery Teaninich was founded in 1817, making it one of the earliest legal distilleries in Scotland. It was built by ‘Blind’ Captain Hugh Munro, a war hero who lost his sight during a battle in 1794. It’s said that he was a benign landowner who wanted to prevent his tenants from becoming involved in illegal distilling practices. In order to provide them with a local market for their grain, he founded the Teaninich distillery. Adelphi was a famous name long before the Adelphi bottling company was created. Adelphi was a renowned distillery in the 19th century, but production ceased in 1907, and by 1970 all the distillery’s buildings had been demolished. But then, in 1993, Jamie Walker, the great-grandson of Archibald Walker (one of the distillery’s founders), revived Adelphi as an independent bottler of remarkable whiskies.
