Non Chill Filtered Irish Whiskey
Psst… a rather exciting news from Teeling Whiskey has just landed: a 15 year old single grain whiskey aged in both bourbon casks and wine casks that have contained sauvignon blanc! We have almost never seen the latter before. The whiskey is made primarily from corn (just like bourbon) and a small amount of barley malt. It spends the first several years in bourbon casks and then gets an extra aging, a so-called finish, in the wine casks, which gives it a rather wild fruity/floral dimension, which dresses it up mighty nicely. It is bottled at 50% and without cooling filtration.
Scent: Light citrus notes, grapefruit, apple and honeysuckle.
Tasting notes: Fresh and crisp with notes of honeydew melon, vanilla sweetness, pear and apple.
Serving suggestion: Enjoy it plain.
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.
