Teeling Small Batch Whiskey is Teeling's flagship Irish whiskey. This small batch bottling consists of hand selected casks which are given further maturation in ex-rum barrels imparting extra character and smooth flavour unique to Irish whiskey. Bottling at 46% with no chill filtration completes an Irish whiskey of true character.
It's an excellent statement of intent. The blend is said to contain a high proportion of first-fill bourbon cask whiskey, and a higher-than-normal ratio of malt to grain.
Cereals - The corn/grain element of the blend brings a distinct sweetness, acting as a canvas for the rich, roasted caramel / toffee character of the malted barley.
Ex-bourbon casks - The grain and malt whiskeys are aged separately in ex-bourbon barrels, in a ration of roughly 3:1, grain to malt. Vanilla and oak notes are imparted at this stage.
Rum casks - Blending in small batches and finishing in Central American rum casks, allow the grain and malt whiskey to marry and take on a subtle dried fruit character.
Nose: An inviting nose where vanilla and spice dances with bright sweet notes of Rum.
Palate: While being very approachable the influence of the rum cask and higher percentage alcohol creates a unique smooth, sweet, slightly woody marriage that sparkles on the tongue.
Finish: Exotic fruit notes push through with a sweet spice finish complimented by woody undertones.
