    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.

  4. Don Cassi scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    The aromas rise very easily and fleetingly from the nosing glass, the alcohol is relatively present. The typical, light and floral profile of the teeling is accompanied by fresh sherry aromas (no long-matured sherry, rather young and modern notes) without standing out too much. Looks very similar to the Brabazon 2, but not as fruity but rather slightly spicy and nutty. Overall, a bit too fleeting and light.

    In the mouth, the nutty, spicy notes of the sherry cask come to the fore. The alcohol is noticeable but not as present as in the nose.

    In the finish, a relatively woody-fresh oak note builds up, which buries the remaining, filigree notes under it. A few sour fruit notes hide in the background.
    Length: 4/10

    Overall relatively light and simple sherry malt, which leaves little room for the filigree profile of Irish whisky. The sherry notes also seem rather immature and unexciting.

    With a little water it becomes much more harmonious and round.

    Grade: 2

  6. The_Osprey scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Teeling Brabazon Series 1, 49.5% (6xsherry cask), consumed August 2018. Pale golden. Fudge-banana-nutmeg-plasticine-sherry-green raisin aroma. Oily body. Spicy, hot, alcoholic, warming, sharp palate. A bit simplistic taste-wise. A little oily, oak, alcohol-led flavour, a touch of floral perfume. Not actually that 'sherryish' all considered. Just OK. Was hoping for a lot more. (2.9/70)

  7. PalummoWhiskey scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    Sherry cracker in Irish. A strong start with fruity smells on the nose, red berries, honey and vanilla in the taste and a nice, strong finish. Leaves the typical sherry mouthfeel behind for a few minutes.

  10. Malthead19 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    - very characterful Irish single malt
    - it looks even stronger and more massive than the already existing 49.5%
    - could definitely postpone a little more age, still looks a bit "young"
    - Too expensive for the quality shown
    • Nose
      strong, intense (still slightly pungent) fruit notes, dry sherry oak
    • Taste
      (undiluted): Burning strong start, sherry and lots of oak spice

      (with water): the "stinging" is gone but still very powerful and robust, oak and dry sherry are dominant, dried fruits
    • Finish
      medium-long, powerful finish;
      medium-long finish with oak

    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
    6 - 24 year 1991 port cask 8474 54.3% Netherlands Exclusive - 67 points WB ID 83807
    7 - 30 year 36% bourbon cask no 1, Platinum Reserve - 67 points WB ID 57821

  12. lincolnimp scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    light & fragrant on the nose, almost rum like, the palate is all over the place still sweet but slightly hot.
    This tastes like a blend to me with vanilla overtones yet it is a single malt, I suppose you would categorise it as a big cereal note.
    With water some green apple and as little pear, the finish is warming and pleasant.

    Eccentric

    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.

    MONTHS LATER:

    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

    This nose is nothing. First spritig, then plörrig. The creamy sweetness in taste and finish is quite nice, but does not reach the front and back for required 60-70 €. Where the official and other notes dry fruits, plum, blueberry, Oloroso, licorice and the like take, is beyond me, it can not really lie on my sample, which is quite fresh and the associated mother bottle also well filled. For me, this is a good WIllen a € 35 whisky.
    • Nose
      sour - between lemon, dry white wine and sour-cucumber-water - and a bit pungent, after 10 min (I can dilute below 50% and no backup reserve) it gets better: fruity, white grapes, apple-pear compote, something Vanilla / white chocolate, a hint of white pepper - not at all uncomfortable, but somehow powerless, stale, which looks like it's too diluted (and not particularly sherry-typical)
    • Taste
      light, creamy sweetness, white and milk chocolate, Toffifee to nougat, vanilla, in the cheek pouches comes from time to time this sour wine-sour-cucumber note from the nose, mild, again no sherry association
    • Finish
      medium, first creamy-sweet-milk chocolate, then soft white pepper

    Has its charm but definitely not worth the price difference compared to the standard single malt or the Stout Cask.
    • Nose
      Mainly apple. Blueberry, caramel and yellow raisin.
    • Taste
      Apple, peach, blueberry and caramel.
    • Finish
      Apple, caramel, peach skin and a dry nuttiness. 

  31. Andytka3 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    N- Dried sour fruit candy, fresh leather, oat meal and cola, well layered on dried petals. Spiky heat, scents of olorosso, liquorice, whiff of vanilla, plum and spices.

    P- Sweet raisin, nutmeg with lovely strength, spicy and dry, plenty of bites albeit light on palate.

    F- Medium, gentle offering of sherry, light and easy. Hint of bitterness, some resinous, Modern candy sweet with good spicy bites.
