    shop info: "An exciting new release from the team at Teeling! Here we have an addition to the Teeling collaboration series, this time featuring a collab between Teeling and Plantation Rum. This small batch release features a premium blend of grain and malt whiskey which has been matured separately in ex-bourbon barrels for a period of 6 years before being carried in Plantation Pineapple Rum Barrels for a further period of 15 months."

    You will ask: "Pineapple Rum?". Well, here it is the one and only "PLANTATION RUM PINEAPPLE STIGGINS' FANCY", a pineapple flavored rum. This is made by blending together a) a white rum blend, where the bare rinds of pineapples were macerated in for 1 week and then the whole thing is re-distilled AND b) a dark rum blend, where ripe pineapple flesh is infused for 3 months. This blend is matured for another 3 months in wooden casks. Before bottling the whole juice is reduced to 40% abv, sugared with 20 gramms per liter and colored with a little, little, little E150a (Oh, I have forgotten the marketing story about Rev. Stiggins... - Link: https://www.plantationrum.com/plantation-stiggins-fancy-pineapple )

    And I think they use these casks for finishing the Teeling Whiskey.

    I think the whiskey itself comes with a fresh fruity nose. Pineapple, of course! Followed by a nice Irish palate incl. yellow fruits and green grain and a ripe and a little bitter (bitter orange?) finish. This is really one of the better rum finishes, that we can find these days and it is perfect for whiskey cocktails. Well done!

    Exciting, interesting bottling of Teeling, which is not immediately recognizable as whiskey. At first you think much more of rum, because the pineapple taste clearly dominates from the first second. Could be exciting for summer cocktails. To drink it straight, I would give priority to other whiskeys.

    Do we need more pineapple?

    The last release in the Small Batch Collaboration that I will try, again a sample through Benny, is a Teeling that matured on a Pineapple Rum Cask from Plantation. By the way, the rum was very pleasant. So I am expecting a very sweet whiskey, just like the release from 2018.

    Yes, as was to be expected this nose is dominated by pineapple, followed by coconut, banana, apples, raisins, cherries and pears, also a surprising amount of earthy notes I have to say. After some breathing some candied sugar emerges. This is very pleasant.

    Syrupy on the palate. Nice! Pineapple juice on steroids, with banana, apples, cherries... lovely continuation of the nose, upholstered with cinnamon and cloves. Do I also get a hint of coriander? Anyway, I find this very good, even though it is hard to taste the whiskey in here.

    In the medium finish I get the feeling that I have just swallowed a white rum, while I am chewing on a slice of pineapple.

    Tasting this blind, whiskey will not be the first thing on your mind, but that does not take away the fact that this is a lovely dessert. That was 50 EUR well spent.
