Whisky Reviews for Teeling Single Malt

- Well, I found the batch from 2015 much more to my liking as it was much more tropical, while this one is rather a summery light weight. But still very affordable: between 35 to 40 EUR.
The nose is still quite fruity, but shows more citrus this time around (lime, grapefruit and lemon). Very grassy and a touch floral too. Think heather honey, freshly peeled Granny Smith, some cherries and white grapes. It even reminds me a bit of white wine. Summer in your glass.
It is very light on the palate. Again apples and citrus fruit, but also quince and some dried peach. Fresh rhubarb. Green banana. Nicely seasoned with pepper and ginger. A pinch of cinnamon. The oak does make me pull some faces.
The finish is medium long, a touch drying and spicy.
- Very accessible malt whisky. Teeling knows how to please I guess. No edges and for 46% dangerously quaffable. The price is competitive as well and (at least for me) I couldn’t detect the usual unmalted barley character found in other Irish blended Whiskys. Decent stuff.
Vegetal, leafy and full of green fruit, with apples, rhubarb, unripe plums and pears; possibly kiwi as well. Behind that, one can find vanilla and caramel form rather active ex-Bourbon casks. The alcohol can overpower your nose quite fast though, indicating a rather young age. When nosing carefully however, floral undertones like lilacs and roses are discernible.
Good clean arrival. Rapidly building into sweet and rich caramel, orange liqueur, and preserving some of the greener components found in the nose. Water opens this up to induce chalk, toffee, and turns the icing sugar slightly bitter – something that always reminds me of artificial sweetener.
Medium. Light and sweet, with oranges and caramel.
- [June, 2017] Just a small sample as a bonus on a whisky order. Not impressive at all, extremely sugary sweet and a little bitter both on the palate and finish. Not to my liking...
- strange sensation with a mixture of fruit and wine!
vanilla, apples, spice
always spicy, a little woody, cold ashes, fruits in the register of citrus fruits!
a return of vinous wine, not very delicate on a short final
- Pleasant Irish single malt,
mainly the sweet wine notes and the sour citruses playing.
Citruses, rum cherry, tobacco and eucalyptus
Piquant spices, citruses, tobacco. Wine notes and tangerine.
Medium length, bittersweet
- No complex whisky but very good for the price range.
A whisky for beginners or in between.
Strong spice note
slightly spicy in the beginning
clear taste of spices
In the end, a taste of oak is noticeable.
short in the finish
