Teeling 24 Year Old - Vintage Reserve Collection
A 24 year old Teeling from their vintage collection, initially matured in ex bourbon before a finishing period in sauternes, this sounds right up my street.
The cask combinations have added cask char and sweetness giving this a nose and taste of manuka honey, with lots of sweetness and a mix of tinned fruits and watery melon like fruitiness, this is deliciously drinkable and robust and complex enough to keep you interested. A nice dram indeed.
Seems to be sold out everywhere but keep trying specialists like Master of Malt and The Whisky Exchange for future releases.
Thanks to Teeling for the official sample
Initially a gentle puff of woodiness, then sweet tinned fruit salad in syrup with extra caramelised sugar on top, chantilly cream, hints of mince round in pastry, waxy vanilla pod, puffs of cask char and manuka honey.
Watery honeydew melon and chamtilly cream, vanilla pods and manuka honey, pastry and syrup, gentle and sweet and tasty
