The Teeling Whisky Company was founded by Jack Teeling, the son of John Teeling, who founded the Cooley distillery in 1987. The company’s philosophy is to “challenge the norm by creating alternative Irish whiskeys with greater depth of personality and character than the current mass-market options…from a non-aged Irish Whiskey spirit …to our range of very old hand selected casks of Single Malts and all in between”. This high strength blend has been matured in rum casks for nine months prior to bottling.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Light and sugary. Baked apples and Demarera sugar. A sense of a more complex but distant element to this – one that you can never quite put my finger on.
Palate: Sweet and smooth but with a big oaky hit. The oak and sugar coat the mouth and hangs around forever.
Retails for around £30-35
