  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Was a bit of a gamble to purchase this bottle to be honest; no legendary Teeling vintage of the early 1990s, but mid-1990s this time.... But it doesn't disappoint at all! A great Irish fruit bomb again with an endless finish, one we were hoping for. Not sure whether it is Bushmills or Cooley this time. But I usually associate rum casks with Bushmills.
    • Nose
      Bingo! The expected tropical fruitiness pops up straight away; mango, Reine Claudes, tinned pineapples, and lychees. Followed by zesty notes of lemon and gooseberries. Later on some green bananas and yellow prunes. Honey sweetness, vanilla, and marzipan. There is also a very enjoyable waxiness with mineral notes present. Very nice!
    • Taste
      A delicate balance between citrus and tropical fruitiness with an edge of grapefruit bitterness. Passion fruit and papaya. Aniseed and bergamot. Touch of cake-mix and custard powder as well. In the background grassy notes and green tea. Typical Irish profile; quite creamy with full textured mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      Very long with lots of delicate pink grapefruit mixed with hints of orange peel and mint. Spices of cinnamon, ginger and a little white pepper. Well-balanced Irish whisky. Good cask selection by the lads of Bresser & Timmer!

    I have only tasted 9 Teeling and to be honest apart from the 24 year cask 8385 which i scored at 87, the rest have been pretty mundane which surprises me as I like old blends, so you would think a lighter whisky would be right up my street.
    Hopefully this will be like the 24 year.
    The nose does remind me of an old fat blend, it id full of white fruits and cream with hints of coconut and melted butter, not the most expressive but a decent start all the same.
    Now then the first attack of the palate is really good with a lovely syrupy fruit cocktail flavour followed by a little sherbet, the fruit is a mixture of apple, lemon and lime with some mango in the mix. It loses a little sweetness as you go on but the mouthfeel is still quality.
    The finish is pretty long and the fruit is still vibrant, it fades slowly.
    With water some menthol appears on the nose and the palate gains loads of spice , but the fruit is just well, yummy is the only way to describe it.
    It is a fruit salad of quality, my best Teeling so far by some margin.

    Absolutely terrific.
    • Nose

      Teeling, 25 years old, Rum Cask: that gives hope for an unparalleled fruit bomb.
      And indeed: immediately a basket full of fresh tropical fruits appears in the nose: mango, pineapple, papaya, passion fruit, banana. a good portion of pepper, grated nutmeg, cinnamon and thyme ensures that the sweetness of the fruit does not get out of hand.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Fantastic start, just brilliant: Creamy and fat, it settles on the tongue, strained mango, passion fruit, pineapple and mashed banana slide over the tongue as a fruit puree. Waxy mouthfeel, vanilla and sweet canola honey, ginger, clove-studded fruitcake, cinnamon waffles.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long, creamy, fruity and with just the right amount of spice.

    You want to have an exceptionally good evening with friends of a good dram? Then get yourself a bottle of this great stuff and embark on your journey - you won't regret it!!!

      What an east basket, wow! Apricots, mirabelle plums, reneclaudes, then a citrus phase appears with grapefruit, green apples, young strawberries (which I had exclusively in my nose - but at least I have something exclusive, lol). Then a great vanilla note with roasted almonds prevails. great nose
    • Taste
      91 91
      Creamy, tender, vanilla and fruit again. Lychees are added to those mentioned in the nose.
      If you give it time and air, you have a slight astringency in your mouth, the saliva follows...
    • Finish
      94 94
      ....in an enchanting finish, enormously long, mildly spicy with a hint of ginger/wasabi.

      Pastries, delicate bitter citrus, damp wood, banana
      and rum. Fine nose.

      Immediately passion fruit. Wow. Then not very much.

  11. herby.usa scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Newly arrived and must of course be tasted.
    Freshly opened - supplements will follow at a later date.

    Conclusion after the first tasting: There is still potential behind it, let the gentleman "take a breather".

    Additions on October 16, 2022 (unfortunately the bottle is almost empty)
    - means: It's simply delicious!
    • Nose

      Despite cask strength very reserved in alcohol vs. nose

      First vanilla and something sweet.
      Caramel, grapefruit, banana, cotton candy, butterscotch, buttery, vanilla pudding - and always playful sweetness.
      Rum (tropical fruit?) comes through (pineapple, passion fruit), and again sweet (yellow/tropical) fruit, coconut,
      maybe a little flowery/perfumed - but only for a short time.

      He needs time and air.
      There's definitely more evolving over time (we'll see how it evolves in a few weeks).

      10/16/2022:
      The rum stands out a bit;
      overall, however, no change - means: full development right from the start.
    • Taste
      90 90
      grapefruit bitterness, passion fruit,
      becomes creamy/oily.
      Wow, after the first small sip full passion fruit bomb. And very nice interplay with the grapefruit - fruity/juicy sweet vs. bitterness.
      OMG, he's really "full of chokes" in his mouth now - amazing.
      Butterscotch, caramel and mazig, pineapple and coconut

      10/16/2022:
      Start: tingling, slightly peppery - changes relatively quickly to sweetness and as already described above.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Butteriness, grapefruit hold each other.
      Not very long, but long enough until the next sip!

      10/16/2022:
      Pink grapefruit bitterness and contracted mucous membranes are long lasting
