Teeling single grain whiskey is made from grain whiskey sourced from Cooley Distillery, the Teeling family’s former distillery, which has been aged for just under six years in ex-Californian cabernet sauvignon wine barrels. Bottled without chill filtration or caramel colouring. Released 2013.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 07/09/2014

Appearance

(sample bottled Oct/14) Clear, golden amber.

Aroma

Pencil shavings, vanilla fudge and light cinnamon spice with faint coal dust and salt. Orchard fruit emerges with water.

Taste

Heavy in texture – almost chewy. Cinnamon spiced, buttery and faintly smoky with cream-of-soda vanilla sweetening and smoothing aggressive dry oak tannins and black pepper spice.

Aftertaste

Long dry finish. Vanilla, cinnamon and black pepper spice with lingering oak tannins.

Overall

Sadly few grain whiskeys are bottled and this one is to be celebrated as one of rare Irish examples and even rarer wine cask matured. However, it is dry and woody with vanilla fudge helping to tame oak tannins.
