    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.

    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.

    An interesting batch, but nothing more than, young-green, and seems to be entertaining, but no,
    not impressed ...

  4. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Sweet, tart and sometimes a bit dry, but overall a lovely whisky that's certainly worth the price.
    • Nose
      Initially some green apple and port stewed pears, but also white pepper and cinnamon. Then cassis, blood orange and icing sugar. Really lovely.
    • Taste
      Pleasant astringy. Caramel notes and some tart forest fruits as well as grapefruit. Some ginger and a pinch of white pepper again. The blood orange makes an encore as well.
    • Finish
      Orange pith and juicy red grapes. Some bitter notes as well.

  9. MY MALTS scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very good... sweet and oily on the palate...
    From oranges to dried figs, everything is included...
    I encounter the sharpness (49.5%) with this drop
    4.5 ml. water to 2 cl. Brabazon Bottling...

    • Nose

      A very sweet and gentle nose with lot of apricots and marmalade. Yeah, I like the nose very much.
    • Taste
      88 88
      On the palate orange zest, pepper and also a bit of bitterness but that are the tannins talking; something you often experience with finishes on barrels of the Iberian peninsula.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The finish is medium long till all of the aforementioned ingredients are fading away.

  13. Izzino scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    This is a really great show. The color does not even indicate that it should be a white port. The nose is very intense and full. Blood orange probably dominates the taste. Probably a top of the Brabazon series. Really successful super shot.

  14. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A few vegetables to start with, seaweed, tall grass, then vanilla, sour candies, apricots, mint strawberries, holly, tarte tatin. Heather. Lemon zest. Pear liqueur. Granny Smith. In the mouth, it is well balanced, sweet, seasoned with some spices. Ginger, cumin, cinnamon. It is not intrusive. On the other hand, the finish is peppery, almost explosive, quite long, very nice. Wood, star anise, honeysuckle. A little dry land.

    Pleasant, tasty and also somewhat unusual representative from this Brabazon series. It didn't really pick me up but it is always drinkable.
    • Nose
      85 85
      At first it seems relatively dry and flowery to me. Somehow floral, chamomile, floury apples. Quite a strong bourbon touch with a lot of vanilla, caramel and citrus. Glue with a lot of malt. With more time, darker fruits come after oranges, grapes and cherries, and it becomes a little deeper and denser. Everything is better interwoven. In addition, a nice rum-raisin chocolate with a lot of sweetness. In the background a subtle sulfur note that seems a bit unsuitable here.
    • Taste
      86 86
      First sip is astringent. A little pepper and spice create a pleasant heat. More dark fruit now, has a more intense effect. Pickled cherries, orange jam and a little honey med make a good sweetness. The second sip is creamier, softer, just a little rounder. A few spices give a nice contrast.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium-long finish, some caramelized fruit, rosé wine, sweetish with a light peppery note,
