Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey

teeling-small-batch-irish-whiskey

Sampled at Whisky Birmingham 2015 run by The Birmingham Whisky Club, the second of three whiskies tasted as part of a Chocolate Matching Class.

Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience. as such you may interpret this whisky very differently from me.

Colour:

Gold.

Nose:

Vanilla, spice and a rum background.

Palate:

Smooth and creamy, almost like a vanilla flavoured chocolate drink with a shot of rum.

Finish:

Again smooth on the finish with a spicy chocolate tone.

Overall:

A good whisky with a surprisingly crisp finish which left me instantly wanting another mouthful.

 

Notes:

Matched with a dark Brazil Chocolate (66.8% cocoa).
