Teeling / Irish Whiskey Small Batch / 750mL
Nose: An inviting nose where vanilla and spice dances with bright sweet notes of Rum. Taste: While being very approachable the influence of the rum cask and higher percentage alcohol creates a unique smooth, sweet, slightly woody marriage that sparkles on the tongue. Finish: Slightly moorish, sweet spice finish complimented by woody undertones.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - Shimmering and tropical on the nose, with hints of mango, pineapple, coconut, and a touch of orange blossom honey. Mellow, yet bright on the palate with honeyed nuts, lemon zest, and milk chocolate which lingers on the finish. - 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge (Finalist).April/2018
Our Flagship Irish whiskey and our attempt to create the most interesting Blended Irish whiskey. This small batch bottling consists of hand selected casks which are given further maturation in ex-rum barrels imparting extra character and smooth flavour unique to Irish whiskey. Bottling at 46% with no chill filtration completes an Irish whiskey of true character.
Whiskey making and entrepreneurship has been in the Teeling genes as far back as 1782, when Walter Teeling set up a small craft distillery on Marrowbone Lane, Dublin 8. Right back in the heart of the Liberties district of Dublin city, Jack and Stephen Teeling, the latest generation of whiskey makers, set up the Teeling Whiskey Company in 2012. In March 2015 they opened the Teeling Whiskey Distillery the first new distillery in Dublin in over 125 years, and just a stone’s throw from their ancestral distillery, right in the heart of the Golden Triangle, the historic distilling district of the city. With one eye on the past, but looking to the future, we’re the new generation of Dublin distillers. We approach our craft with a respect for generations passed but with the confidence to forge the next chapter of Irish and Dublin whiskey.
