Single Malt Irish Whiskey
Teeling Rising Reserve No. 2: A Triumph in Tradition and Innovation
With a heritage dating back to 1782, the Teeling family has been synonymous with the art of crafting Irish whiskey. The recent inauguration of the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in Dublin’s Liberties district marked a pivotal moment—a realization of their longstanding vision to reintroduce the tradition of Irish distilling in the capital, propelling Teeling and Irish whiskey back into the spotlight.
To commemorate this resurgence and usher in the next chapter of the golden era of Irish whiskey, Teeling proudly presents the second installment in their Rising Reserve series—a 21-year-old Single Malt whiskey that underwent a secondary maturation period in high-quality ex-Marsala casks.
Rising Reserve No. 2:
The Rising Reserve series follows in the footsteps of the coveted, successful, and award-winning Revival and Renaissance releases. Originally crafted to celebrate the opening of the Teeling Whiskey Distillery, these series served as tributes to the revival and rebirth of distilling tradition in Dublin. The second member of the Rising Reserve series is a 21-year-old Single Malt that initially matured in ex-Bourbon barrels for 16 years. Subsequently, this whiskey underwent a finishing period in unique, high-quality ex-Marsala casks, extending for over 5 years. This process imparts delightful flavors of citrus, honeysuckle-like sweetness, and a gentle spiciness to the whiskey.
A gentle vanilla sweetness intertwines with toasted apricot, tobacco, and rich spiced fruit. Sweet bitter orange and roasted almonds add complexity to the aromatic profile.
Creamy and warm on the palate, with waves of brown sugar and stewed fruit. This is followed by oak tannins and cinnamon-like spices, creating a well-rounded and sophisticated flavor profile.
The finish is long and warm, where honeysuckle, rich unrefined cane sugar, citrus, and spices gracefully intertwine and alternate, leaving a lingering and memorable impression.
Limited Edition Excellence:
Released as part of a limited edition of 6000 bottles, the Rising Reserve No. 2 embodies the pinnacle of craftsmanship and innovation. The marriage of ex-Bourbon and Marsala casks creates a symphony of flavors that reflects both tradition and modernity, making each bottle a collector’s treasure.
Teeling Rising Reserve No. 2, bottled in 2023, is a testament to Teeling’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of Irish whiskey. As the Rising Reserve series continues to carve its legacy, this release stands as a harmonious blend of time-honored craftsmanship and daring innovation—an embodiment of the spirit that has brought Teeling and Irish whiskey to the forefront of the global stage.
