  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Sweet and more and more greedy on vanilla, the influence of rum casks is minimal at this stage. A little toffee, more and more in fact, it lacks relief. On the palate, sweet and fluid, the rum casks strongly mark the whisky by giving it a syrupy side without spices that tends to unbalance the whole. In swallowing, some exotic fruits, vanilla and beautiful length, this is where he is the best.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

    the (presumable) fruity distillery aromas are very beautiful and intense. The cumin surprises on the palate. However, the barrels used have probably been quite exhausted. At any rate, the fifteen years are not reflected in relevant oak notes and / or bitterness. And also Rumeinflüsse one looks in vain.
    • Nose
      sweet tropical fruit (passion fruit), subtly pungent alcohol, little wood
    • Taste
      Caraway and other spices, passion fruit, alcohol just fine,
    • Finish
      Medium long again with the tropical fruits and berries, and finally oak. Virtually zero bitterness.

  5. PatSch23_12 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    For me, the weakest of the series so far, albeit far from a bad whisky
    • Nose
      fresh and grassy, ​​lighter body. At first does not really close to Rumfass. Sparkling pineapple, not yet quite ripe papaya and a fresh wood note tend then rather in the direction. I miss something of the dark sugar ..
    • Taste
      a full basket of fruit, wonderfully creamy. Banana, honey melon, again the pineapple (makes it tingle) and canned peach. However, the typical meadow note of Teeling does not quite harmonize with this and immediately produces a slight grapefruit bitterness.
    • Finish
      In the finish extremely spicy, almost spicy wood (ginger and pepper), which prevents the impression of a rounded malts.

  7. Koalafant scored this whisky 65 points Expert Senior

    In the nose quite promising and pleasant this Teeling fails to my surprise in the taste on the whole line. As a nightcap after the meal maybe still drinkable, but not to enjoy!
    Notes dated 29.08.2017 => 65/100
    • Nose
      Fresh and slightly alcoholic at first. Somehow also typically Irish. Then Rumrosienen arrive in the nose and a strong honey note makes its way navj front, accompanied by caramel (fudge) and a subtle thymi note. He is always sweeter.
    • Taste
      Here unfortunately only burning alcohol with taste of cheap rum. In addition very bitter.
    • Finish
      long, burning and bitter ... A throat cleaner!

    • Nose
      Vanilla and a spice pepper. Fine nose.
    • Taste
      Herbaceous and vanilla. Matches the nose.
    • Finish
      Soft creamy finish.

  10. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Nothing fits together for me. I like interesting whiskys with nooks and crannies and crazy taste combinations, I also like a rum (also here rather unusual / interesting than round-sweet), but rum whiskys usually do not work for me, and this is particularly wrong. Somehow the flavors could have made an interesting mix (apart from the nose-wit at the beginning), but the puzzle pieces do not suit me, completely independent of the price. Probably it should be like this, but not my taste. (But the presentation is great! ;-))
    • Nose
      Strange ... so there's a nice, varied fruitiness, but also something of cheap schnapps ... no direct rum notes, more like a mixture of cheap gin, tequila and white rum for drinking mixes. OK, that flies nice after 5-10 minutes, then strong pineapple, banana, cinnamon, some fresh sawdust, pleasant. So, let go, wait!
    • Taste
      Again tropical fruits, pineapple, grapefruit, lime, passion fruit, I like otherwise, but here this green, bitter side outweighs, seems a little unripe ... in the background chocolate, some pepper, burnt sugar, a weird-bitter rum note, in the station wagon it reminds a bit of tree needles, and something burned ...
    • Finish
      medium to long, dark chocolate, brown sugar, but again this immature green and bitter fruity note
