- Tasted at the Whisky Show, Budapest 2018.10.27.
- 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.

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.
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.
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.
- Again too young whisky from Teeling distillery, barrels of average quality, plus the fact that you can feel the character of the distillery.
