Excerpt: On the palate, you'll find a fairly full whiskey with flavors much like the aroma with a little vanilla cream and a hint of mint. The finish is on the dry side, but the fruit factor is not as intense as you might expect.
Excerpt: On the whole the Teeling Irish Single Grain Whiskey has a boldness to it that sustains it from the nose through the finish; the wine casks seem to have tempered the harshness that can come from young grain whiskey. It’s something that I wasn’t expecting, but those casks have given it a depth that’s usually only found in much older grain whiskeys. It’s a nice, different, perspective on Irish whiskey and well worth a try.
Excerpt: The body is even harder to pin down. At first the whiskey is mild and easygoing, then it develops some of the more traditional character of Irish whiskeys — touches of banana and coconut, salted caramel, buttered toffee, and honey. The grain base becomes more evident on the finish, a toasty, malty conclusion that is both a little unexpected but also surprisingly satisfying.
Excerpt: The aroma shows nuts, vanilla and orchard fruit. It's light-bodied and slightly buttery on the palate, with lots of vanilla and custard, and a slightly fruity finish and a build of alcohol heat.
