  1. moviemaniac scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A very enjoyable dram. Pour, set aside for 15 minutes to half an hour, then have a go at it. Big, but not overwhelming, sweet, but not too much (though maybe borderline for some) and not too wine- or cask-forward, supporting the light Irish base distillate. Not cheap at about 120€/110GBP retail price, but it is really good!

    This was a very very disappointing H2H for me, in fact it was dire. The only conclusion I can honestly come up with is that Teeling Whisky is rubbish, and almost tasteless and obviously the quality/price ratio is off the scale in a negative way.
    As the ages increased the quality dipped.
    I usually like Irish Whisky but Teeling needs suing under the Trade Descriptions Act, I have had £10 blends that were better than these 7 offerings.

    For what it is worth, here are the average scores, tasted in this order.

    1 -Brabazon Series 1 49.5% bottled March 2017 - 79 points WB ID 95806
    2 -Brabazon Series 1 49.5% bottled February 2018 - 78 points WB id 110662
    3 - Single cask 11 year cask 10191 53.6% Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Cask
    Bottled for Bresser and Timmer - 70 points WB 82649
    4 - 14 year 46% The Revival volume 3 - 70 points WB ID 92715
    5 - 21 year 46% bottled 2015 Batch 4 - 65 points WB ID 66026

    The 4th Teeling in a row with a non descript nose, a little apple and cream and that is about it?
    Green apple skins on the palate as it is slightly sour so we are talking Granny Smith's apples here, Ther is a little spice but it is basically all apple and little else.
    A few drops of water improve the mouthfeel but it is cardboardy now and the finish is short, really short
    This is rubbish and if the older Teeling offerings are like this as tastings go this will be one to forget.

  7. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Aroma: malt, a lot of pastries with raisins and vanilla, cream, fruits, oriental sweets ... interesting
    Taste: repeats aromatics, and that’s good ... very edible Molt ...
    Aftertaste: medium, pleasant, sweet.
    Perhaps the best Irishman I've ever tried.

    Scent intensity: (7)
    Tonality: ( 5-6 )
    At the top, there are some green alcohol feelings... 1
    Light and cool...1
    A little bit of water chestnut is not quite like 46% of the sweetness of the performance, not moderately rich yellow fruit ripeness... 4
    But there is always a sapling of raw wooden nuts...3
    Some baked cakes on the bottom layer are sprinkled with spices... 2
    Entrance aroma: (5)
    Strength: (5)
    Tonality: (7)
    End rhyme: (6)
    The influence of the Pineaus des Charantes barrels is more pronounced. The rounded baking dessert & cocoa butter & baking wood is sharp but the tail has a rounded wood and some bitterness.
    Total: ( 86 )
    Pineaus des Charantes barrels are quite rare. The aroma of the mouth can be said to be rich but unfortunately some of the prominent elements feel uncoordinated.

    Well, can't believe in the omnipotent Revival Series this is remembered as the GOOD ONE.

    Not really easy to drink due to its overwhelming sulphur-like smells, not typical Pineau des Charentes, not typical Cooley either. It contains some sting you could encounter with pineapples. Tropical, fruity yet fortified-y, but seriously overrated by sherry lovers.
