Since the Teelings parted company with Cooley, the company they started, we've been waiting for their return and here it is - Teeling Whiskey. Finished in rum casks and bottled at 46% without chill-filtration it's an excellent statement of intent. The blend is said to contain a high proportion of first fill bourbon casked whiskey, and a higher-than-normal ratio of malt to grain.
Teeling's much anticipated 21 year old vintage reserve. Distilled in 1991, this was matured in ex-bourbon casks and then married in Sauternes casks to finish. This first batch is believed to be the first ever Sauternes finished Irish Whiskey. The next releases will be at 25 and 30 years old and we're brimming with anticipation.
