Nose

Prototypical middle-aged Irish with western, green fruits instead of tropical ones (so rather greengages, plums, apples), but with an obnoxious layer of creamy pears on top of that. Rather simple, but extremely pleasure-focused and full. Some slight pastry sides as well, which is just another trademark of these still quite young Irish.

Taste

More of the same, rather a bit more Liqueurish on Willam's Pear, and a nice malty, dough-y dryness again. Great texture, great proof, the Pineau is indeed quite unmistakable but works perfectly in this context.

Finish

No so long, granted, but no off notes either. Creamy, pear-ish again, with mirabelles.

Comments

Excellent. The whisky version of the pear Oïkos yogurth if that rings a bell. That kind of creamy, full and oddly mature fruitiness is actually getting very hard to find below 100€ among Scotch, just saying.

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!

88/100

Nose: nicely fruity. There’s the typical middle-aged ‘greener’ fruitiness (pear, greengages) but also sweeter, more candied notes (dried apricot, pineapple cubes, mirabelles). Very good. Mouth: same quality, same fruitiness now joined by honeyed notes, creamy almond paste, a little pepper and indeed a hint of Pineau. Funny how this vaguely reminds me of very old cognac which can display the same kind of slightly tropical fruitiness. Just a light tingle of oak and some hazelnut notes. Finish: long, now a bit drier, with hints of dark chocolate.

I think this is even better than the already very good first Teeling Revival. A Pineau finish that is subtle but effective. Currently only available at the distillery, Dublin airport and Irish retailers. Should arrive in international markets in March, in time for St. Patrick’s. Score: 88/100
