This week's 'Whiskey Write Up' is an Exclusive Single Cask from Teeling Whiskey.
Only available to buy from the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in Dublin (and TeelingDistillery.com), this whiskey is a Single Pot Still, fully matured in American Bourbon barrels, bottled at Cask Strength 62.8% ABV.
This is one of Teeling's 'Fill Your Own' options at the Distillery, a fantastic way of treating yourself to a one of a kind whiskey (more on that separately soon)
This is a Dublin Born Single Pot Still meaning the liquid comes from the stills at Teeling's Distillery in Dublin's Liberties and had been maturing in their warehouse since.
The cask was brought to the Distillery Gift Shop where it now sits for whiskey fans to grab a bottle and fill it for themselves, directly from the cask.
Produced in 2015 this 6yo SPS is a fantastic Cask Strength offering, with a beautiful soft vanilla nose to it and a slightly woody aroma. It's 62.8% ABV but doesn't feel it on the palate, it has a soft creamy mouthfeel with more vanilla coming through and finishes off long with typical Pot Still warmth and spices with dry tannins to finish.
An absolutely fantastic drop, typical of what the Teeling Single Casks have come to be synonymous with. Priced at €100 per bottle, this Single Cask is definitely one to get a hold of before it's gone!
Nose: Vanilla, Coconut, Wood Shavings.
Palate: Creamy mouthfeel with vanilla, wood.
Finish: Dry finish with lingering tannins.
ABV 62.8% | 70cl⠀⠀
