Teeling Single Malt

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.

17th March is St Patrick’s Day, in preparation for this I’ll be posting tasting notes for a selection of Irish whiskies to help everyone get in the spirit!

Colour:

White wine.

Nose:

Chocolate, vanilla, dusty oak, fruity – grapes and a touch of citrus.

Palate:

Sweet, vanilla, oak, spice. Once the spice subsides you get sweet and fruity notes with red grapes and citrus.

Finish:

Nutty, dusty oak and later a hit of fruit again.

Overall:

Having tried Teeling’s Small Batch before and having loved it I had high hopes for this one and they certainly didn’t disappoint! At around £40 – £45 a bottle it’s a little more than your other standard single malts on the market but in truth It’s worth the money if you’re looking for something a bit different from the usual offerings on the market.

Don’t just take my word for it though – check out No Nonsense Whisky’s review of it here for a second opinion.

 

Notes:

Taken from The Teeling’s Website.

 

Nose

Vibrant with notes of melon, figs, toffee and lemon.

Taste

A balance mix of dry fruits, citrus, vanilla, spice and cloves.

Finish

Long with sweetness in harmony with dry tannins from the wood.
