      Teen sharp. Don't buy it overpriced in the market!

    A vatting from a single malt cask and a single pot still cask, plus Dublin distilled - as far as I know, Teeling has never had that before. In my opinion, both types of whiskey complement each other very well and together form a very nice birthday whiskey. As a lover of Single Pot Still spices, I would have personally wished for a little more dominance of the SPS barrel, but that's a mere petitesse.
    • Nose
      Very fresh and fruity, but also directly with crispy and chocolaty notes. Apricots, bitter orange marmalade, red apple, alongside toffee, caramel, honey and strawberry chocolate. Fine spiciness of tarragon and savory, which becomes more and more intense over time, but without crowding out the other aromas.
    • Taste
      For 56.6% it has a comparatively soft start, you hardly notice anything from the high alcohol content, it just lies warm and full on the tongue. Beautiful fruit notes come at the beginning: apricots, orange peels (he has left the pleasantly bitter taste of the corresponding jam in the nose), nectarines. Very well-balanced spiciness, which cannot be determined more precisely, but which perfectly complements the fruity notes. Milk coffee, vanilla beans, cookie dough, becoming increasingly dry.
    • Finish
      Medium length and dry, fruity, only slightly spicy, but with lots of caramel and milk chocolate and well dried oak planks.

    Sweet and lemony, reminds me of limoncello

    Double

    For their sixth anniversary (because it was founded in 2015), Teeling launched a so-called Double Cask in 2021. Only 600 bottles were prepared, imagine that. The Double Cask refers to the fact that it is a mix of two casks, namely #36676 and #49499. One cask contained Single Pot Still whiskey, the other single malt whiskey. Let's see!

    The nose is very fresh and lively. Lemon and white berries, but also sweet malt sugars and a lot of herbal notes. Think of a lawn in full sun. Ferns. Spring in your glass.

    The body is fine. The arrival, despite the relatively high ABV, is rather soft. First comes white fruit and lemon, then grain cookies follow and then the white pepper explodes that makes your mouth completely warm. But, I have to add that I have the feeling that there is relatively young stuff in here. It certainly tastes very young. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I felt mentioning it.

    Especially in the finish you notice the young age, which is stimulating and medium-long.

    A nice experiment by Teeling, it seems to me, but that's all. Thanks, Benny.
