After trying the Teeling Single Grain a few months ago.
I’m still kicking myself for not even knowing about Teeling.
So for St. Patrick’s Day coming up I had to try the Single Malt.
I must say I’m glad I did. I received it this afternoon.
Colour: apple juice with a touch of caramel.
Nose: sherry and cabernet sauvignon.
Taste: very mellow, definite hints of sherry.
What others have had to say about it.
Teeling Single Malt Bottling Note
The eagerly anticipated Teeling Single Malt Irish Whiskey, made with 100% malt whiskeys. A selection of five wine-cask-finished-whiskeys were used for this release (some of which were distilled back in 1991), including Sherry, Port, Madeira, White Burgundy and Cabernet Sauvignon. Exciting, delicious stuff from the Teeling chaps in Dublin.
Nose: Intense white grape juiciness on the nose, joined by fresh malt and Rolos, developing into white chocolate the longer it’s in the glass.
Palate: An elegant expression, this. Well placed fruit, backed up with cinnamon and white pepper. A touch of dried flower petals along the way. Strawberries?
Finish: Definitely strawberries, with fresh double cream too! Ace.
Others have heaped praise on this whiskey and rightly so.
