Rare 30-Year Irish Whiskey to Debut in US — for a High Price
Ireland’s Teeling Whiskey is releasing 4,000 bottles of its Vintage Reserve 30-year-old globally. It will arrive this month in Dublin and reach the U.S. in January 2022.
The Vintage Reserve is bottled at 46% ABV without chill filtration and will retail for $2,199.99. In the U.S., it will be available to purchase from liquor retailers in California, Nevada, Texas, Illinois, New York, Massachusetts and Florida.
The single malt whiskey was distilled in 1991 and matured in bourbon casks before it was given nine years of extra maturation in Sauternes wine casks.
“We are extremely proud to be able to release some of the oldest ever bottlings of Irish single malt with our Vintage Reserve Collection,” said Jack Teeling, founder of Teeling. “Each release has proven that Irish whiskey can match and beat any whiskey from around the world.”
Nose: Luxurious combination of fresh orchard fruits, roasted nuts and chocolate.
Taste: Velvety smooth with real depth of peach and apricot, hints of citrus fruits are interwoven with a light touch of smoke and herbal woody notes.
Finish: Long, lingering fruit notes with a distinctive mix of spicy oak and smoked sea salt.
