    Blind tasting: Unfortunately, it has an artificial chemical note.

    The third and for the time being last edition in the so-called Sommelier Selection is a Teeling that got a finish on Amarone barrels. I'm curious about that now. Amarone is an Italian wine that takes its name from the word 'amaro', which means bitter. As always, this Teeling sample was delivered to me by Benny J, one of the biggest fans – if not the biggest – of Teeling in our small country. Thank you for that!

    A sweet, creamy scent full of crème à beurre and hazelnuts fills my nose. Some cocoa powder, coffee beans and blue plums appear, as well as some cuberdons and candy sugar. Delicious.

    The body is a bit on the light side, but in terms of taste it is good. Plums, blueberries, strawberries and raspberries with a hint of white chocolate and cuberdons (again). A soft spiciness in the form of black pepper and licorice presents itself. A bitterness as soft as that of a grape seed brings it nicely into balance. The alcohol is well integrated.

    The finish may be a bit on the short side, it is already satisfyingly sweet and spicy.

    If you consider that you can buy this for about 50 EUR, then you know that you have got bang for your buck. Thanks, Benny.

    Very weak model. On my nose I can hardly feel anything at all, the taste is slightly contrasting with the tones of old wood, chocolate, raisins, figs, jellies, but overall, if I do not drink this model I will never lose anything again.

    food pairing
    Dark chocolate, cherry jam and black pepper is a nice combination, but unfortunately the whiskey becomes sharper

  10. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Sympathetic and greedy nose, on plums, currants, candied cherries. Wood bark, blueberries, blackcurrant. Corn and vanilla are behind, with a hint of limestone and cereals. Wheat under the sun, dry land. The palate is a little light, but very winey, on blackberries, raspberries. Lemon zest. The finish is correct, nothing more, not too long, wood and charcoal, a little dark chocolate. Cola, sour cherries, mocha. Heather, undergrowth.
