  1. zoanaan scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    When I bought this whisky, I didn't have great expectations, but the good price, a little higher ABV (46%) and a rum barrel made me try it. Expectations were easily exceeded. The price below 30 EUR is definitely fair and worth to spend. This Irish turned out to be a pleasant and easy drinking type. If only it wasn't so mild, I could say it's a good every day dram...

      Very mild and gentle, typical for Irish distillates. I felt mainly fresh fruit (apples), vanilla, and hard candies. pleasant enough for me to sniff for a few minutes. In my humble opinion the nose is the strongest point of this whisky.
    • Taste
      80 80
      alcohol not well integrated ... it's young whisky. However, its sharpness disappears quickly, giving way to sweetness. I imagine its source in sugar cane and molasses. Finally, the fresh fruit comes back.

      short/medium, a bit sharp, not bad. Nothing to talk about.

  7. mister glenfarclas scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Fruit punch, vanilla. Herbs. Alcohol dominant. Not very intense in taste. Nice sweet vanilla. Not grainy. Quite drinkable. Significantly better than the Distillery Exclusive.

  9. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Soft corn on the nose, sugar cane, icing sugar, sponge cake. A little limestone. The cereals are in the background, but we can smell them, it's a bit like harvest time. Wheat, sun, barley. In the mouth, light vanilla, pastry cream, marzipan. It is greedy, without being aggressive. Puffed rice. Thick, creamy milk. A drop of lemon maybe, but no more. The spices then rise. The finish is a bit harsh, but very long, on corn and other grains.

    I am a big fan of Teeling and the Small Batch is a very affordable starting point.
    A great place to start a Teeling journey.

    Fair average cut. 65 points.
    • Nose
      Bright, fruity, sweet. Cereals, honey, some Campari rum.
    • Taste
      Sweet and grainy, slightly bitter.
    • Finish
      Short, subtly bitter.

  17. Moses scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    A very young blend as seasoning and alcohol are very intrusive. So rum is not mine. We do not find together.
    • Nose
      77 77
      Alcohol with a piercing nose who sniffs too early. With some time in the glass plus water it gets better. Then comes vanilla and apple pie with fruit compote.
    • Taste
      78 78
      Sweet and sour, he launches vigorously. He keeps me awake and wild. Otherwise quite an apple, sometimes vanilla and then light herbs with lots of sugar. Well. It's OK.
    • Finish
      77 77
      Means with a rather spicy sour note!?. Or rather we say "strange". Definitely comes from the appropriate youth. We will not become friends. Unfortunately not mine

  18. AdamsB scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Irish blended whiskey with a high malt content matured in barrels of rum, which adds extra notes of spices and sweetness. It is not cold filtered for this.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Notes of freshly cut grass, oranges, vanilla and delicate herbs
    • Taste
      80 80
      Creamy, with accents of citrus, dried herbs and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium long, creamy, with notes of slightly spicier spices.

  22. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    It’s a sweet and a little bit spicy on nose with notes of red apples, caramel, oak, cereals, perfume and oak. The palate is slightly sharp with notes of apples, acetone, cereals, vanilla, pepper and good dryness. The finish is a middle, sweet and spicy with notes of fruits, pepper, oak and vanilla. It’s a good whiskey for daily drinking.

  23. larswehmeier scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Intense sweet and fruity. Sweet apple. Apple Cake. Something ethereal cooling in the nose. Some anise.
    • Taste
      Spicy and strong on the go. Overall, much less sweet than the nose. For a lot of oak and malt. Not very complex, but pleasant to drink. The apple is of course also back.
    • Finish
      Medium. Rather dry but not bitter.

    [January, 2016]  I had this dram during an "Irish" FoSM club tasting.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 75.  I
    took no detailed notes as this whisky did not interest me.

  32. vojt466 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    But the experience is interesting, but I would have to repeat it.
    • Nose
      Strongly sweet - it's a combination of dominating rum, cinnamon and light oak tones
    • Taste
      The taste is sweet (not too much), overall smooth and slightly spicy. It is difficult to recognize any individual ingredients of flavor - of course there is a little rum there, surprisingly later comes the salinity
    • Finish
      In reverberation, the flavor of rum strengthens, feels molasses, toffee and a little spice. Dozuk is medium-long

  33. Koalafant scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    In the nose completely weak, it makes on the palate quite fun. In the end, then again a disappointment.
    72/100
    • Nose
      Slightly dry and subtly vanilla. The intensity decreases rapidly after ...
    • Taste
      Dry at first, then getting sweeter and sweeter. Very light grain note.
    • Finish
      medium and quite dry

  34. ctu scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Light irish blend, although the rum is only recognized with the cane sugar.
    • Nose
      Young, slightly alcoholic, fruits: orange, tangerine, vanilla and apple pie
    • Taste
      Sweet sugar cane, sour lemon and lime, roses and herbals
    • Finish
      Flowers, spices and sour citruses

  35. Dramany scored this whisky 79 points Member Senior

    Nail polish and rum with wood dust and a little caramel.In the finish, tropical fruits appear briefly.

    (I tasted the version bottled in 11/2015)

  38. EarlMobile scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    This Teeling is really quite young, which can be recognized by the strong alcoholic notes. The taste is a mixture of alcohol, Brennereicharacter and a fruit note, which is more similar to the note of an obstacle, than the rum sweetness of (dark) fruits. OK for the price, but nothing more.
