  1. Kaleva scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nice whisky, very pleasant especially on the nose. Palate is very spicy but tasty, giving lovely fruity notes. Quite pricey expression from Teeling but worth if not buying then tasting for sure.
    • Nose
      Tender, floral, creamy, a lot of vanilla, honey, apricots, overripe yellow pears, lychees, soft toffee, sweet oranges, hint of oak
    • Taste
      Sweet, very spicy (peppers, ginger), fruit bubblegum, banana, oatmeal, notes of oak, lemon peel
    • Finish
      Short, mouthwatering, slightly nutty and sweet, porridge, oak notes

    This is an easy fresh apple. Actually tastes good enough, just extremely lack of complexity and boldness.

    Don't buy this if you don't like brandy.
    • Nose
      Honey sweet, malty, loads of apples, hint of almonds. The apples are no surprise after being finished for 12 months in 250 litre ex-Calvados French apple brandy casks.
    • Taste
      Rich in honey and vanilla first, thick but smooth and easy going. More spices than expected from the nose. Powerful but light body. A lot of the calvados taste in here, but I don't say it's bad to drink because I like to drink calvados too.
    • Finish
      Slowly drying out with a Little bitter orange and dry oak.

    I join Mr. Edradour, both in judgement and explanation.

    I very much like Teeling single malts and I enjoyed the regular, decently priced single malt as well as many of the more expensive single cask/cask strength expressions (the white burgundy, cabernet sauvignon and madeira casks especially).

    Compared to these expressions this one is a bad disappointment, even without regarding the high price. The best thing with this expression is the luxurious packaging, I'm sorry. For over 90 Euros, this one is a bummer.

    An interesting attempt that personally sat down to me, although it is true that for someone it can be too much to calvados
    • Nose
      Very interesting scent - it most reminds you of noxious juice, apple compote, a bit of matolin and woodiness + very fine spiciness
    • Taste
      Calvados is strongly felt, ie. mainly apples, woodiness, the background is milk and medium-soft spiciness with occasional appetizing juices of ripe red apples and tropical fruit
    • Finish
      In reverberation again apples, woodiness, cereals and growing cinnamon spiciness ₊ decaying light (and tolerable) bitterness

  10. Andytka3 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A beautiful liquid gold in an equally impressive packaging and bottle.
    Juicy fruits, honey and floral malt with good strength. A bit tight at the beginning with aked apple pie,
    leafy with vanilla and subtle ash developed overtimes. Pleasant,
    elegant and gentle.

    P- Honey, sun-dried green apple skins,
    subtle tobacco, cedar, charred wood with drift of zest sourness.
    Dissolve well on the palate and turn to quite milky, dried fruit chocolate,
    with a wee touch of curious salt (or rust, or zinc, or coin) on tips of

    F- Medium, milky chocolate, good weight with thick and
    syrupy candy caramel, all at the right notch, without being cloying.
    Balance with good warming strength.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
