    • Nose

      The nose is not too strong. Vanilla and citrus fruits come to mind first. A slight hint of pineapple as well
    • Taste
      84 84
      A lot of vanilla again, combined with exotic fruits (mango, kiwi and some bananas) and a spicy touch.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Rather dry and quite short with a hint of orange zest. Peppery note stays dominant in this finish

    Fresh yellow fruits, yellow raisins and honey / vanilla sweetness. This Teeling is not overly complex but rather tasty. It has a full body despite the 46abv. It’s a friendly zipper but a tad too expensive for what it delivers.

  4. Defeatless scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The nose is alright, the taste is good but the finish wrecks it.
    It is a decent Irish whisky though, but this could have been done better.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Mossy, little grass, smells vaguely of a damp forest in spring morning.
      Subtle wine influences. There is also quite a bit of honey in the background.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet and soft arrival. Honeyed, vanilla and hints of the wine barrels.
      It is quite a light or delicate whisky. But it is quite tasty!
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium length. Some odd notes here. A little bitter, dry and hint of chalk. Shuts down with a tad sour note.

    • Nose
      Very humid on first contact. Dry red wine. Dark chocolate, unriped banana, opening up with more fresh fruits
    • Taste
      Typical Cooley type of distillate on the background.

  8. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Normally I'm not spending time drinking Irishmen but after an international themed meeting with my friends I have to admit there are some great Irish whiskies out there and this is certainly one of them!
    • Nose
      It's fresh, fruity, sweet and a tad sour. Apples, immature kiwi, pineapple, saw dust and a hint of almonds. Very pleasant stuff Well balanced.
    • Taste
      Very full bodied and tastefull. Thick and creamy body. One to keep in your mouth for quite a while. It's nicely sweet and balanced. Well matured stuff.
    • Finish
      Long finish. Silky and sweet. Ripe peach and a hint of fresh wood. It gives a pleasant fresh finale. Excellent stuff!

  9. Erik1908 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    This was the first in line in a line up of non-Scottish whisk(e)y. Surprisingly full bodied taste for its 46% abv.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Fresh, fruity and like "Kaleva" correctly mentioned below, somewhat whiny.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Oily, spicy, fruity again. Warm and full body.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium long to long. Warm, somewhat sharp. Fading away slowly.
