Non Chill Filtered Irish Whiskey
A cracking release from Teeling, joining its Small Batch Collaborations series, this expression sees its Small Batch blended Irish whiskey processed to a finish in Dark Porter casks from Dublin-based brewery, Dot Brew. But where did Dot Brew get the casks to mature its delicious porter? It’s friends at Teeling of course! A selection of former Central American rum casks previously used to marry the Teeling Small Batch were filled with glorious dark beer. Finally, the casks were emptied again and went back to Teeling to be refilled with Small Batch so the whiskey could finish amongst the rich, dark, chocolatey malt notes of the porter. A splendid collaboration between neighbours, and should go really well with a good dark beer.
Nose: Rich dark chocolate, syrup, whispers of vanilla and hoppy malt.
Taste: Roasted caramel and ground coffee mingle with sweet baking spices and distant, flowery berries.
Finish: Hoppy, herbal notes develop in depth with the crackle of woody spices and swirling orange peel. Hearty malt, sweet toffee and cocoa linger.
The Teeling family has been making Irish whiskey since 1782, when Walter Teeling opened his whiskey distillery on Marrowbone Lane in Dublin. Dublin has traditionally been the heart of Ireland’s whiskey production. The history of Ireland’s whiskey production is incredibly exciting and dramatic and is largely connected to the country’s relationship with England, for better or for worse. As many as 37 distilleries had smoke in their chimneys at the beginning of the 20th century, but one by one the distilleries closed and since 1976 no whiskey has been distilled in Dublin – until now! The Teeling Whiskey Distillery is the first newly opened distillery in Dublin in over 125 years and the Teeling family see it as their mission to bring the art of distilling back to the heart of Dublin!
The tasty whiskey comes from 3 shiny pot stills, which are named after Jack Teeling’s 3 daughters. 25% of production is dedicated to whiskey of an experimental nature, making Teeling one of the most exciting distilleries to keep an eye on in the future.
