Those that know me, know I was a Brand Ambassador for Teeling Whiskey working out of Dublin Airport for just over 3 years until the current Pandemic put an abrupt stop to it. Anyway, during that wonderful time, last year I was lucky enough to try this beautiful liquid before it was finalised and bottled. This 13yo Single Malt in Carcavelos Port Cask is nothing short of fantastic, and I urge every Whiskey fan to try it before the limited 10,000 bottles sell through!
Check out the Press Release below for all the details on this beautiful liquid..
We are proud to have released the fourth and last in our award-winning series of limited edition Single Malts, entitled the Brabazon Bottling, Series 4. This series continues upon Teeling Whiskey’s dedication to creating new and interesting expressions of Irish whiskey and in particular, expanding the underdeveloped Irish Single Malt category. The Brabazon Bottling Single Malt Series focuses on creating a full flavoured taste experience that pays homage to the unique and distinct role that fortified wines can have on Irish whiskey.
The Teeling Whiskey Brabazon bottlings celebrate the combination of the old and new, producing very unique and interesting Irish whiskeys. For Series 4, we have sourced unique barrels used by a long forgotten historical style of Portuguese Port, to produce a truly unique and distinctive bottling of Teeling Whiskey. Carcavelos is a style of Portuguese fortified wine dating back to the 18th century. Produced historically just outside of Lisbon, its wineries have mainly disappeared over the years. Now only 25 acres remain with Carcavelos produced on a very small artisanal scale, so we were very lucky to get our hands on some barrels used in its production.
These rare Port barrels were filled with our Single Malt which was distilled in 2007 and left for over two years to impart the full range of flavour and character on the whiskey. The result is truly a unique 13 Year Old Single Malt whiskey bursting with soft citrus fruits and distinctive, effervesce style spice. Limited to 10,000 bottles and bottled at 49.5% this is truly an Irish whiskey to savour.
Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey, commented: “Our aim with our Brabazon Bottling Series is to create full bodied tasting experiences for people who enjoy the added complexity and taste that fortified wine maturation imparts. We now complete the Series with our final bottling, this time using barrels previously used for a rare White Port, which produces a very unique expression of Teeling and Irish whiskey. This is a fitting end to our award winning Series which celebrates the combination of old and new as well as highlighting our unique approach to making Irish Whiskey and our spirit of innovation.”
Teeling Whiskey’s Brabazon Bottling, Series 4 is currently available in Ireland and is now being rolled out to our partners in Benelux, France, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, Australia and select Asian markets in due course.
