    White Port?

    This 4th Brabazon release is also the last in the series. It was finished on Carcavelos White Port. Excuse me? Carcavelos may be a fortified white wine – like a white port – but since it is not produced in the Doura valley, it is not allowed tob e called port. So Carcavelos White Wine Barrels would have been better. But I digress. We get the point. Let’s dig right in.

    Very rich, sweet and aromatic nose on apricots, stewed pears, honey and lime. The port (excuse me!) is unmistakable on the nose, but does give it dimension never before experienced. The Teeling DNA takes advantage of this. Impressive.

    Fruity and sweet on the palate, nicely oily. Immediately oranges, peach, apples, grapefruit and juicy honey, a prickle of pepper and ginger and soft tannins. Something perfume-y and a hint of cigars and even soy sauce. Beautiful balance and simply wonderful.

    The finish is medium long on caramelized peach, nuts and spices from the oak.

    Delicious! Mr Chasko – Alex to his friends – is an artist. You may quote me on that. Around 90 EUR, that I gladly forked over. This is my favorite from the series.

  9. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A very curious, harmonious and unusual whisky, with pleasant astringent, slightly unripe, berry features.
    • Nose
      Black grapes, peanut butter, mint, fresh baked goods. Deeper - wool, old leather, barnyard.
    • Taste
      Oily, tingling, with hints of young nuts, slightly unripe green apple, herbs and spices.
    • Finish
      Long enough, pleasantly astringent, winey, with tones of black grapes, figs, prunes, with a delicate influence of oak and spices.
