    Future Classic

    The 1991 stocks are amongst the oldest that the Teeling brothers still have in their warehouses (thus from the Cooley era). In 2016 the released the Teeling 24 Year Old Vintage Reserve from the very same stock. Last year, that whiskey won the World’s Best Single Malt title. Well, you don’t need more incentive than that to release some more, right? So rejoice! After a long maturation on former bourbon casks, the malt was allowed to marry on Sautneres wine casks. Only 4.000 bottles were produced, but they each got a price tag of around 500 EUR.

    What a party on the nose. Guimauve (yes, yes, yes!), peach, banana flambéed, nectarines, hint of red berries and roasted almonds, silk sheets (no joke) and wonderfully subtle, but unmistakable smoke. There is peaty malt in the mix, undoubtedly.

    It’s not tropically sweet on the palate from the start. It first offers up some earthy notes, a sublte salty touch and peat smoke, before honey-drenched peach kicks in. But silky soft and very elegant.

    It lingers nicely, puts a smile on my face and makes me look around sneakily to see if anyone notices me pouring another dram of this.

    This is what you call a future classic. I have only just put my nose in the glass and knew I wanted to get a bottle of this. As the tasting session progressed, this was only confirmed. And how lucky is this? This 28 years old whiskey is also the 28th Teeling that I’ve tried. It’s a sign!

    A whiskey worthy of its predecessor, the 2018 World Whiskey Award Winning Teeling 24.

    The Teeling 28 is smoother than its predecessor, as expected from 4 years of additional maturation.

    Limited to 4000 bottles, and priced at EUR500.00 per bottle, these are also extremely collectible.
