    Somehow more palatable and also interesting malt. Not so interesting that you have to deal with it for a longer time, it doesn't give enough for that. But it also looks monotonous every now and then and, due to its artificial sweetness, also slightly exaggerated.
    • Nose
      84 84
      At first you have the feeling that there is nothing in the glass. Hardly noticeable, very reserved.
      Then light citrus notes, vanilla and fresh sawdust emerge. A bit of marzipan comes through, which is more of an artificial sweetness.
      Plus caramel popcorn that smells a bit like cotton candy.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Slightly oily, liqueur-like, sweet, vanilla, toffee, a little salty popcorn, rather on the malty, woody side but hardly any oak spice. Even the 46% don't provide the necessary kick here. So it seems a bit monotonous.
      But it is kind of drinkable.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium finish, dry, vanilla, caramel,

    The new Teeling Distillery Exclusive Whiskey, finished in Chinkapin Virgin White Oak casks, is now available exclusively in the Teeling Distillery Gift Shop! This new release follows the trend of previous Teeling Distillery Exclusive whiskeys by being matured in unusual cask types. Previously, Teeling have had great success exploring the influence of different wood types with both Chestnut and Hungarian Oak cask finishes.

    The most recent member of our Distillery Exclusive range is bottled at 46% ABV and finished in Chinkapin Virgin White Oak casks that have been sourced from Eastern and Central North America. The liquid has a sweet toffee and butterscotch nose, with a oily mouth feel and ripe dates, liquorice and wood spices on the tongue. For the finish, the wood spices remain on the tongue and are accompanied by black pepper and a lingering hint of liquorice.

    Like the previous Distillery Exclusive bottlings consumers have the ability to personalise both the bottle and tube label. It’s ideal as a take home memento of your visit to the distillery, or as a nice personal gift!

    This rare bottling is available to buy in the Teeling Distillery Gift Shop for €60, with the personalised version costing €65.
