Teeling Single Malt Irish Whiskey Review

Teeling Single Malt Irish Whiskey Continuing the celebration of Ireland's patron saint, St Patrick, this is the Teeling Single Malt, a vatting of 5 different wine cask (Sherry, Port, Madeira, White Burgundy, Cabernet Sauvignon) .

Now this is interesting as although I'm not a fan of ex sherry matured whiskey I do like ex port and ex madeira for their sweetness, the wine casks I'd not intentionally pick up a Cabernet Sauvignon but White Burgundy is the type of wine that I've found really interesting to drink.

I'm not really sure what I was expecting from this dram, but what I got wasn't it. There are some really interesting pear notes and light fruits, i was genuinely expecting dried fruits, then lots of acetone.

The palate begins to add some tannins which gets really quite dry on the finish.

Available to buy from specialists like Master of Malt

Thanks to Maverick Drinks for the sample

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Oh i wasn't expecting the nose to be like this, it's all pear halves, pear drops and light tropical fruits, i was expecting much more rich dried fruits in here. Light caster sugar topped creme brule, acetone, grape skins, shloer white grape juice, enticing

Palate

Again this is quite light, much lighter than i was expecting, those pear halves in juice are there again, a hint of pear drops (slightly artificial) more white grape juice and lightly caramelised caster sugar, a hint of something tannic here that wasn't on the nose.

Finish

Tannic notes, drying, white grape juice.
