The most secretive (and out of the area) distillery of the Speyside area, is probably the distillery with the same name. The distillery has added a bourbon matured whisky to their portfolio, which has matured for an additional six months in freshly emptied ex-Tawny casks, hence the name Tenné, which we heard pronounced as “Tawny”

Nose: sweet, heather honey, vanilla, floral, heather, red wine (the port, probably), berries, cranberries, gooseberries, wood chips, a hint of pipe tobacco
Conclusion: They could also have named this whisky after my uncle Ben, who was a painter, sculptor, poet, port drinker, pipe smoker, young at heart, the prototype epicurean. Although you have not known the good man, you probably have the correct image in mind already, of both man and whisky.
