    Great nose: sultana raisins, honeybiscuits, floral, perfumy and slightly vegetal with apple and apricots.

    Taste: dried fruits, apple, raisins, some green herbs and a whiff of white pepper.

    Finish: not too long with again the herbs, nutmeg, some pepper and a little wood bitter.

      It also takes a while in the glass

      Very interesting the bottling, but in the mouth for my taste then a little too sour

    I confess, I tried this one before, a little over two years ago. At a Teeling tasting in my neck of the woods. I remember it vividly as I posted a photos of this bottle on social media, while it was some sort of preview. Could I pretty please remove the photo asap? Oh, okay… In the meantime, the second release is already on the market, which I quite liked. But I’ll gladly return to this first batch from 2017. No less than 12.500 bottles were launched, all filled from sherry casks.

    Although I first get a whiff of burnt rubber on the nose, this evaporates quickly to be replaced by all kinds of dark and sweet notes. Think plums, raisins, dates and some dark chocolate. There is a surprising note of broth in there. Somewhat umami, in fact. A bit eccentric.

    On the palate, it proves to be creamy, dark and sweet with a metallic twist. Banana, bitter oranges, plums and even some pineapple on the barbecue, joined by a spiciness that steers towards cloves and cinnamon. Hint of espresso and some… err… chewing gum with blackberry flavor? Eccentric indeed.

    The finish is medium long, soft and sweet.

    I preferred the second batch, but this one is clearly more fun. Unfortunately also pretty expensive with it’s price tag of around 80 EUR.

    Tasting notes also available in french on the whisky blog ;) http://www.justanotherdram.com/en/tasting-notes/teeling-brabazon-small-batch-revival-v-19yo-2.html
    • Nose
      The sherry notes are not so hard, they are even rather shy. These are manifested with aromas of plums and dates. A touch of chocolate and biscuit.
    • Taste
      Sweet and slightly creamy. Mainly fruity, with a lot of oranges flavors, bananas, peaches and pineapples. It lacks a touch of spice, which I was waiting for with thatt kind of barrel, to make the difference with other similar bottlings.
    • Finish
      Medium length, always smooth, fruity and sweet.

    'Sherry casks’ is what it says on the bottle. This expression celebrates William Brabazon, 3rd Earl of Meath.

    N: A super-accessible nose offers sticky toffee pudding with peanuts.
    T: Arrives with ease and settles in. A bitter trace helps balance the sweetness.
    F: Trickles on through.
    C: Amazingly tempered throughout. An unexpected delight.

    Scores a B[-]



    N: This young, firm & robust single malt speaks highly of its cask influence, a creamy & rubbery [Madeira-like] sweet profile, though far less sherried than I remembered it being before [Blog].
    T: Trying this blind, I guessed it as being either Swedish [Mackmyra] or maybe Irish, finally plumbing for Glenallachie – doh! The journey speaks of coppery/sulphur-y, rubbery youthfulness, though again, it’s far less sherry than I had remembered it.
    F: Splinter-y, with a Brenne-like [Blog], blackcurrant bubblegum/candy sweetness.
    C: Not as I remembered it at all. Today it’s rather less inspiring.

    Scores a C
