Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In the glass, the Teeling Single Malt emanates a vibrant amber hue, saturated yet translucent, signaling the complex aging journey it has undertaken through multiple cask types, including Sherry, Port, Madeira, White Burgundy, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The nose offers an inviting symphony of complexity. A lush bouquet of dried fruits – think figs, raisins, and apricots – is perfectly counterbalanced by floral undertones and an array of spices. The melange of cask influences becomes apparent here; delicate hints of vanilla and toasty oak wrap around fruitier notes, creating an intoxicating blend of aromas.
Upon the first sip, an explosion of flavors unfolds. The dried fruits sensed in the nose are delivered in a burst of richness, quickly followed by subtler, tropical fruit elements like pineapple and melon. These fruity profiles are masterfully contrasted by spicier notes of cinnamon and clove. The variety of cask influences weave in and out of the tasting experience, lending nuances of toasted almonds, vanilla, and even a whisper of dark chocolate.
The finish is both long and layered. Warming notes of oak and spice persist, elegantly diminishing into a softer, buttery texture. A final note of dried fruit and nutmeg linger, encapsulating the full-bodied character of this exceptional Irish single malt.
Exclusively available at Third Base Market & Spirits, Teeling Single Malt Whiskey is a paradisiacal journey through Ireland’s rich distilling history and the complex art of cask maturation. For the discerning whiskey aficionado, this bottle offers an intricate tapestry of flavors, unified by Teeling's incomparable blending craftsmanship. A sublime encounter with the Irish whiskey tradition awaits in every dram.
Full-bodied, excellent balance. More robust than the other Teelings - which are also good, but this is a level up from those.
