Té Bheag Connoisseurs' Blended Whisky
Prában na Linne // Scotland
This non-chill-filtered, blended Scotch whisky is one of three expressions by the Gaelic producer, Praban na Linne (The Gaelic Whiskies), on the Isle of Skye. Té Bheag's blend includes 40% malt from Islay, Island, Highland, and Speyside whiskies that have aged 8 to 11 years. It's pronounced 'chey vek' and is Gaelic for "the little lady."
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
"A spirit-forward nose breaks into coastal-heavy sea spray with iodine and a splash of rubber cement. A floating peatiness brings the whisky loads of cozy warmth. Mild vanilla and lavender help to distract from the day at the beach. Raisins, apple and candied nuts fire up the mouth for the smoke show that drives the palate into a long hot and spicy finish."
