    velvety and honeyed sweetness, slightly maderized fruits, intense spices, rather pronounced woody, almonds.
    on the palate, it is more spicy and more alcoholic at first, the woody arrives, there is vanilla, toffee, very soft caramel and cooked fruits, a little light mold and return well honeyed.
    in the final, it's unfortunately pretty short.

    • Nose
      The port wine influence reveals itself to me here with notes of fruity linseed oil in the nose. Smells very healthy! On this oily carpet then immediately builds a whole fruit basket of fruits. Freshly sliced ​​yellow sweet mango and some unripe bananas, red grapes and pear compote. Honey sweetness with traces of vanilla and caramel deepen the sweet fruit even further. Florale notes after violets are not my thing otherwise, but here they are subtle and almost the harbinger of a spicy grassy herb meadow in late summer, which opens up with a longer smell in front of the eyes - really beautiful! The partly older port wine barrels show surprisingly little influence, primarily I have freshly polished tart oak and planed wood shavings.
    • Taste
      This Teeling starts warm and dry with a nutty-oily texture. It is then also really sweet with fragrant acacia honey and heather. The oily does not let up, over and over again come freshly chopped flax seeds, plus ground peppercorns and macadamia nuts. The sweetness continues to become more herbaceous and a few mirabelle plums, immature cherries and sweet pears cheat. Again, I would have expected more strong European oak, but the woody character remains more in the background and tastes rather freshly beaten and polished and slightly resinous.
    • Finish
      The finish is a little sensation! Although not overly long, but very aromatic. The oily continues, over-ripe mirabelles, roasted aniseed and hazelnuts, fresh hay and light grapes provide an aromatic-fresh mouthfeel. Some bitter oak sets dry accents.

    Aroma: open bright, dark berries, forest and garden: black currant, blueberry, blueberry, mulberry and jam from them, honey, syrup, dry wood, bark. Vanilla pastry and green apple are completely background.

    Taste: bright, rich, pinching tongue and palate, red pepper, extra black chocolate, dark raisins, the same variety of forest and garden dark berries with the addition of bitter viburnum, plum skin, tannin, burnt caramel.

    Finish: dark chocolate with raisins, compote of dried fruits, light woody motifs, pleasant ginger core, buttery, medium length.

    Rating: 86

    The result: a pleasant chocolate and berry whisky, a classic port as it should be, the influence of barrels is very strong. Without failures from aroma to finish, the fortress is ideal for me, reveals the taste well and there is no excessive alcohol content.

  7. Andytka3 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    N- The soothing scents of oatmeal profile on Teeling's profile well reserved, just perfect for a breakfast dram. Boiled berries, citrus candy and peaches chirping away. Solid and lasting strength at spine with floral sandalwood fragrant, rounded with old oily cigar smokes. (87/21)

    P- Honey comb, cream puff pastries with cut peach. The usual peppery, clove, plum and limey. Feels there are some edgy oily new make lingers, but a quality new make nonetheless, harmless. (87/21)

    F- Medium, puffy pepper nuance with rising phenol, balance spicy and winery, hoped for more intense red fruits but lacking. (86/20)

    Body/Balance - 87/21

    Weighted Rate- 83pt
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
