  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 82 points Administrator

    'Dare to be different' is what they aim for at Teeling, and in that they have succeeded. Using casks from Cooley distillery, they give their Single Malt a craft presentation which is unusual for Irish whisky. On the nose, grainy and floral notes combine with lemon oil, honeydew melon and a touch of ginger. The palate features green apples, shortbread and aniseed, followed by white pepper, sour citrus fruits and herbaceous bitterness. Hints of vanilla, oak spices and lingering freshness remain in the medium finish. A malt with character despite its young age.

    Excellent Irish whisky at a very affordable price under 40 euro (I paid 37,50 euro each for my bottles). Sweet and fruity dessert dram. Maybe too sweet for some people if you don’t have a sweet tooth like me. It was a big surprise when poured blind to some whisky buddies during a recent cheese and whisky pairing event that I organized at home. Everybody really liked it and rated it much higher than the average rating here on WB. Not very surprising because cheese and wine are a good match as well and this whisky has an outspoken wine finish. My favourite Irish standard expression together with the Redbreast 12y 40% which is also a true bang-for-your-buck under 40 euro a bottle. Teeling Single Malt also tastes good without cheese!

      Medium long, sweet and spicy.

  4. keizerjos scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    This is a great soft fruity sensation, exactly on strength, quite complex, freshly sweet, flawless, a lifelong friend. Some character poverty perhaps, there are no pronounced corners or landmarks. The ABV is completely perfect for my taste. The barrels that are tipped here, sherry, port, madeira, white burgundy and cabernet sauvignon provide the varied colorful spectacle that you can expect. More than excellent price / quality. Don't lean for long, call Teeling.

  6. Moses scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Irish standard with good Ralfy key data. Should come across decently and easily. I wanted to be surprised but that was not mine. Spicy with a spicy finish. "Hot" number. Unfortunately, we both do not get together. Pure taste.

      The best thing for me is the nose. Sweet vanilla with wonderful fruits and everything very discreetly interwoven. All right. Respect.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Here are the ghosts. Full mouthfeel but mainly caused by hot pepper and dry tingling on the tongue. Boom, oak with bitter herbs. You have to like it. Sharpness dominates the events until the finish.

      For a long time through the never ending sweet warm heat that somehow arises. Hard to explain where it comes from. But for me all too excited and intrusive. Too bad.

  7. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Was not my construction site now.
    • Nose
      Colour:
      Nice golden

      Nose:
      The colleague starts very sour and immature for me. Green bananas, unripe peach and few drops of lemon juice. He generally smells very young. I mean something wall paint and rauszurie Hustentee. The longer I try it, the more comes a smell reminiscent of freshly cut grass. The alcohol is very clear and clean throughout the story. Not pushy, but always present. The longer I stand, the more obvious is the sour note and also the youthful character.
    • Taste
      Soft, almost tender start. But peppery with NEN certain Küchengewürz. Unfortunately, do not know which one. At the second sip more citrus fruits and dry white wine. Reminds me of Frankenwein. Green, unripe grapes. Again, the green banana and some marzipan. In general, it tastes very young, fresh and immature.
    • Finish
      Short to medium. First, a little peppery. Then light fruit sweets with a little vanilla. In the end, the metallic undertone remains.

      long sweet finish, getting dry;

  9. Bosi scored this whisky 79 points Specialist

    I'm really not a big fan of Teeling and therefore did not expect much from this starter malt.
    The filling has surprised me but then with its fruity aromas and the delicious taste. Of course, the whole thing is kept pretty simple and quickly forgotten.
    • Nose
      The young-looking nose is dominated by a lot of bright fruits, like apples, peaches and pears, as well as aromas of grass, green tea and cherries.
    • Taste
      The taste is clearly marked by wine gum. Behind it you can taste malt, some wood and a little caramel. The fruitiness of the nose is almost completely gone.
    • Finish
      The finish is relatively short, but with malt, nutmeg and cloves a nice spicy taste portfolio.
