    Good, but not better than the small batch especially given the price

    Not a bad example, a little bit harsh in the aftertaste, but grain alcohols are almost not felt. An 8 to 12 month additional aging in imperial stout barrels worked very delicately on this whiskey. Usually, such additional aging in dark beer is either almost imperceptible, or completely interrupts the base of the whiskey. Everything is quite harmonious here.
    • Nose
      Dark chocolate, prunes, rye bread, twigs, old leather.
    • Taste
      Borodino bread, nuts, dark bitter chocolate and dark beer.
    • Finish
      Medium duration, slightly coarse, with hints of Borodino bread, dark dark chocolate and a distinct stout flavor.

    Coffee

    Teeling has released a series of whiskies under the banner Small Batch Collaboration. It's quite a challenge to follow them all, I must confess. But nevertheless I was able to catch a few and I would like to put them head to head. I'll start with this 200 Fathoms, finished on a beer cask that previously held Imperial Stout, from the Galway Bay Brewery.

    The nose starts closed, but with some hand warmth and patience I get vanilla, coffee and a hint of banana. Something vegetal, something herbal, but I cannot quite pinpoint it. I can say, however, that I was not overly impressed with this nose.

    It becomes a lot more interesting on the palate, I must say. Vanilla, coffee and chocolate with banana filling and notes of stout. Think coffee and caramel. Yes, on the palate this is rather good.

    The medium long finish shows the beer notes to the fullest. Pleasant!

    Do you have to be a beer lover to enjoy this dram? I do not think so. I found this very tasty. Around 45 EUR. Did you know, by the way, that Galway Bay brewery afterwards used these casks from Teeling to mature their Imperial Stout again?
