Posted: August 23, 2014 in Cooley, Irish Grain Whiskey

Teeling Single Grain 46%

Matured in ex-Californian Cabernet Sauvignon casks

Nose: Quite light but pleasantly honeyed with some oily, rum like dried fruit, crystallised orange along with hints of nuts, grainy spice and gentle, elegant oak

Palate: Quite subtle and lightly oiled with hints of nuts and dried fruit. Gentle and soft with a lightly herbal character.

Finish:. Good, crisp finish as the grainy spices appear. Lingering botanical and oak notes.

Conclusion: .A subtle, pleasant, easy going grain whisky.

Re-Tasted: Mar 2015

Crisp and floral grain on the nose with hints of dried fruit and winey red berries. The aromas become quite herbal with time and a light vanilla sweetness emerges.

The palate is softer than the nose and displays more oak character. Creamy vanilla and hints of dried red fruit. The crisp grain comes through on the middle, fighting its way through the oak to add balance. Long and herbal with the grain biting against the sweetness.

Re-Tasted: Jan 2017

A full and sweetly grainy nose with plenty of dried fruit and subtle winey notes. Pleasantly rounded with vanilla and developing perfumed berry fruit.

The palate opens with the sweet, grainy, dried fruit with the wine cask adding subtle red fruit notes and grippy, chocolaty tannins. Lovely, crisp, mineral finish with a pleasant austerity, which is balanced by the sweet grain an red fruits. A little drying at the end, but overall pretty well balanced.
