    Important information about the 08/2016 vs. 08/2017

    **Teeling 24 Year-Old Single Malt – 2016 & 2017 Release clarification**

    There has been a few queries about whether it was the 2016 or 2017 release of Teeling 24 Year-Old that recently won the world’s Best Single Malt at the World Whisky Awards. Both releases are from exactly the same vatting with the whisky being distilled in 1991 and matured in Bourbon casks before being further matured in Sauterne sweet wine barrels. These casks were then vatted together and split into two batches, half for the 2016 release and half for the 2017 release. The whisky entered into the awards came from this vatting and was from the tasting stock rather than being from a particular release. This explains why all the whisky is bottled as 24 year-old despite the 2017 release being bottled a year later. 2016 release was the stock image used when the award was first announced but both releases are the same fantastic whisky.

    For the first time, I get a very strong durian fruit flavor in a Scotch whisky.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Fresh cut fruits on a metal tray with ice, sugar glazed pineapple, sugar-coated corn flakes, candied roasted almond, pu-erh tea. After a sip, dry sauna wood with spilled bourbon. The bourbon note is noticeable stronger after sips.
    • Taste

      Yellow fruits bomb! First is the pineapple, ripe banana, mango, and it keep on becoming sweeter yellow fruits. And at the end, the king of fruits - Durian! Definitely the first time for me to get durian in a Scotch whisky! Some really delicate smoke and light lapsang tea dryness behind.
    • Finish

      Medium, with durian sweetness and slight bitterness with pineapple sharpness.

    Enthusiasm Nose: 5/5 Palate: 4/5 Final: 3/5 Whisky n ° 1754
    • Nose
      Exotic fruits that are intense but tend to fade. Almonds, caramel. We are in the Littlemill sphere. Golden malt, chocolate. Vanilla rising in strength. Evocation of a bourbon.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, sweet, creamy, greedy, on the fruits. Very just spicy and juicy. But I admit that I waited a bit more complexity.
    • Finish
      The fruits are more supported in the final, but on the other hand it lacks impact, become almost too wise. The opening is good for him.

    Here’s another one I’d missed previously, hidden from view.

    N: Smells like one of those flawless noses, one mainly talking of meaty-putty dry fruits. There’s some poke but it doesn’t mind some water.
    T: Woody, meaty putty-dry fruits - so more of the same really. Pokey, somewhat blocky/clogged, and the palate at least doesn’t free up with the time I allowed.
    F: Thankfully at the tail it relaxes into a deep fresh and heather honey, wrapping up with a crystal-heathery sugar finish.
    C: Very good but I’ll take the 14yo over it.Scores a B

    This one reminds me a little of the Nose Art Monkey Mask from Whisky Doris with the same earthiness but less punch. Not a bad comparison.
    Dangerous and excellent whisky.
    • Nose
      Gentle, a bit closed at first but it opens after a few minutes. Tropical fruits (pineapples, grapefruits, passion fruits, mangoes), a touch of vanilla, hints of pencil shavings, earthy notes. Hints of red fruits syrup. A veil of peat smoke. With time, custard notes.
    • Taste
      Creamy and fruity with red berries at first and then grapefruits, pineapples, passion fruits and lemons. A touch of earthy peat again. Orange peels.
    • Finish
      Long, lingering tropical notes, light mentholated notes, a touch of spicy oak, a pinch of salt.

    Superb exotic Teeling, and particularly expressive.
    • Nose
      91 91
      The nose is very pretty and immediately seductive.
      You immediately feel a creamy side.
      We start with the exotic, with papaya, mango.
      Pistachios and roasted almonds, aromatic herbs.
      A very light white truffle, with some undergrowth.
      A little burnt caramel.
    • Taste
      92 92
      In the mouth we continue in the line of the nose. It's creamy and immediately intense.
      Papaya, mango, citrus, lemon, yuzu.
      White pepper, milk chocolate.
      Light leather and tobacco. Light wood.
      Aromatic herbs (thyme, coriander, basil?)

      Simple but terribly effective.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Fairly light finish, on the exotic, fresh herbs (mint, coriander), salted butter caramel, lime zest.

    Teeling 24 YO
    The most comfortable whisky that I have had a chance to drink ????????????
    Vintage 08.2016
    Bourbon & Sauternes Casks
    Number of bottles 5000
    alc. 46% vol.
    The aroma is light, casual, sweetish.
    Vanilla, sweet berries, watermelon rind, some spices, noble spirit of the tree.
    We breathed O2 for 5-7 minutes and new horizons are opening before us ????. Berry sourness has appeared and now these are not easy sweet berries, but a berry mix, an assortment of berries, dark and red, sour and sweet, ripe and overripe. Chewing gum is a cross between bubble gum and love is. Not without tropical fruits and banana ????????????????.
    Class, I love these scents. where there is no excessive pressure and concentration, where everything is in its place.
    Taste. The first sip is practically nothing, the second sip and the same ????, maybe yesterday's 63.7% killed my receptors to hell ????????????. On the third sip, everything fell into place ????.
    Sweet, full-bodied. Vanilla, some citrus peel, tropical fruits, sweet berries. There is pepper, noble tobacco, wood and they complement the overall picture wonderfully.
    The finish is long, sweetish with a pleasant bitterness. Vanilla, berry sourness, wet wood, delicate chocolate trail.

    This is probably the most comfortable whisky in terms of drinkability that I have ever tried, but this is not the most important quality of this drink.
    This whisky is "alive", it changes, it develops and constantly plays with you with new aromas, flavors and shades.
