  1. Moses scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Irish standard with good Ralfy key data. Should come across decently and easily. I wanted to be surprised but that was not mine. Spicy with a spicy finish. "Hot" number. Unfortunately, we both do not get together. Pure taste.

      The best thing for me is the nose. Sweet vanilla with wonderful fruits and everything very discreetly interwoven. All right. Respect.

      Here are the ghosts. Full mouthfeel but mainly caused by hot pepper and dry tingling on the tongue. Boom, oak with bitter herbs. You have to like it. Sharpness dominates the events until the finish.

      For a long time through the never ending sweet warm heat that somehow arises. Hard to explain where it comes from. But for me all too excited and intrusive. Too bad.

  4. markjedi1 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    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.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      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. 
    • Nose
      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. 
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      Medium. Light and sweet, with oranges and caramel.

  7. hs305 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    [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...

  8. wisekycourse scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    strange sensation with a mixture of fruit and wine!
    • Nose
      vanilla, apples, spice
    • Taste
      always spicy, a little woody, cold ashes, fruits in the register of citrus fruits!
    • Finish
      a return of vinous wine, not very delicate on a short final

  9. ctu scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant Irish single malt,
    mainly the sweet wine notes and the sour citruses playing.
    • Nose
      Citruses, rum cherry, tobacco and eucalyptus
    • Taste
      Piquant spices, citruses, tobacco. Wine notes and tangerine.
    • Finish
      Medium length, bittersweet
