Teeling Single Grain

Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whiskey 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:

Burnished gold.

Nose:

Herbal, slight note wine, orange peel, sweet – toffee, vanilla and brown sugar.

Palate:

Sweet fruity notes – red grapes, toffee, leading to slight spice, nutmeg and butterscotch.

Finish:

Fruity, creamy and sweet but gives way to more bitter notes over time.

Overall:

Setting the bar high for all Single Grains I try from now on. Great range on the nose and palate. The herbal notes threw me a little but after that I felt like I was drinking a Dalmore with all the toffee, vanilla and brown sugar on the nose. Actually I enjoyed this more than their Single Malt which as it’s around £5 cheaper a bottle that’s nice to know!

 

Notes:

Taken from The Teeling’s Website.

 

Nose

Spice and fruit notes mingle with an underlying sweet nose.

Taste

Strong spice at the start developing into lush red berries and grapes, with drying tannin effect at the end.

Finish

Dry finish dominated by wood and spice.
