Whisky Reviews for Teeling Single Pot Still

10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.09 points

  1. Ruud6421 scored this whisky 71 points Expert Senior

    I had high hopes for this new Pot Still Whiskey. But maybe those high hopes were not fair. Of course this release of this new distillery wouldn't come near to a Redbreast.

    This whiskey tastes very young (unfinished), and this is (partially) masked with active cask flavours. Doesn't integrate that well (but then again young whiskey with lots of cask flavours seems to be a very popular thing nowadays, so this might have a chance).

    Still, it is not a bad dram but I'm missing that real Irish Pot Still feel. I'm being nice with 79 points (that score holds a little appreciation for what Teeling is doing), and I will certainly keep trying Teeling's Pot Stills in future years, fully expecting it will get to a higher level.

    • Nose
      Especially tropical fruit, some pineapple, young spirit, punchy and cloves
    • Taste
      Cocoa, light bitterness, spicy, in the distance some of that recognizable cultivation of tropical fruits.
    • Finish
      Aftertaste is quite flat and short. Dry and slightly bitter.

  3. Highlander65 scored this whisky 65 points Expert Junior

    It is difficult to identify the right descriptors, aromas and flavors are a bit confused, the notes I reported were difficult to identify and some were very brief impressions never again encountered at subsequent sips / smells. That said, the whiskey is quite pleasant, if a little weak in character. Too bad, from what we read online it seems to be the first whiskey entirely produced (distilled and matured) by Teeling, perhaps it still takes a few years
    • Nose
      Aroma difficult to define, I detect an ebony mark and a fleeting mentholated note, a hint of vanilla, a little wax, fresh fruit (lemon), malt. Alcohol is a little too aggressive
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is very light and spicy, sugared almond, barley and fruit candy, traces of mint
    • Finish
      Short, spicy finish
