A great performance from Teeling, after almost 50 years of Dublin break again to have a whiskey from the capital on the market. But as eventful as the event is, you have to leave the church already in the village: the whiskey can do everything a three-year-old can - but no more. Here you can not expect 85-point whiskey, let alone a higher-rated whiskey. It will certainly be exciting to follow the development of the batches coming onto the market in the next few years and to compare them to this first batch.
Green apple and the smell of branches just removed from the green bark. Green grapes. A touch of pear brandy, moist hay. The whiskey looks young and sparkling (no, not sprittig). Lavender pillows from Grandma's wardrobe. Mildly spicy with parsley, celery and leek.
Sliced green apple, pear brandy and some lavender on the tongue. Again the hay, again the salad herbs from the nose. A little caramel, a shot of fine honey. Later, there is still a nice hint of chocolate.
Short and dry with the taste of pears and Granny Smith. Chocolate drops, coffee beans.
