    A beautiful single cask from Teeling, which is obviously a Cooley with its fruity, minty and grassy character. Of course it's not a 1991 or 1988, but the cask definitely has its say and the sherry notes are beautifully interwoven with the distillate. Very good even if it's a bit on the expensive side.
    • Nose
      Without water: Strong, estery alcoholic notes, wine gums, nuts and raisins, vanilla oil, solvent, orange zest and grated ginger. This is clearly very strong, but you can also feel its balance. Nothing stands out and the sherry influence is there, but not too overpowering.
      With water: Changes its direction a bit, with more fruit sourness (juicy oranges, passionfruit) and a distinct minty note. Green apple peelings, grass and ground hazelnuts. The sherry is hardly recognisable.
    • Taste
      Without water: Very strong alcoholic attack, but not too burning. As it recedes, it gives way to a sherry influenced flavour that wasn't that obvious on the nose. Burnt orange jam with caramel, overripe grapes, roasted almonds, cinnamon, ground cloves and star anise. In the background there's always that typical Irishness lingering: baked apples, solvent, green grass and vanilla. Good quality for sure.
      With water: Oh, it's very good now. Creamy, fruity cake with some nuts and a caffè latte on the side. Orange candy. After a while it picks up the minty note from the nose again. The "Irish" notes return as well. It's definitely better and more interesting with a good dash of water.
    • Finish
      Medium long, nutty, with caramel, fresh grass and thick pulpy orange juice.

    The nose is rather shy, even with water. On the tongue he then gives gas with beautiful fruit notes and slight spiciness. In the finish, he flattens off a bit, but overall is a convincing malt.
    • Nose
      Undiluted, he gives very little of himself. With a little water, vanilla, toasty aromas, freshly mown meadow. A relatively restrained nose, because you still do not know what's coming.
    • Taste
      The sweetness of the sherry keg is right there. In addition, however, also show spices that initially can not be specified in more detail. Maybe some roasted sesame? Cherry flavor comes out, overripe red grapes. Very fruity, long lasting.
    • Finish
      The finish is shorter than expected. The ripe cherries dominate, it may be the influence of the sherry barrel.
