About the Whisky:
The first peated whiskey from Teeling, this single malt was triple-distilled at the Dublin distillery. It was matured in both bourbon and sauternes casks.

Proof: 92

Tasting Notes:

Nose: An inviting nose where barbeque smoke and cloves are intermingled with fresh notes of butterscotch and orange peel.

Palate: A fascinating blend of Applewood smoke, honey and all spice are married with stewed pears and fresh grilled pineapple.

Finish: The return of a savory smoke over a lingering wood undertone, which combines delightfully with notes of salted caramel.

Awards/Reviews:

97 Points, Chairman's Trophy - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2023

"Complex aromas of dried mango, candied pineapple, rich soft cheese rind, heather honey, griddle roasted oat-bran, and pencil lead shavings pirouette from the glass. On the palate, enchanting notes of cracked cinnamon sticks, green peppercorn, and warm bread mingle with a whisper of smoked black tea."

94 Points, Rank #3 - Whisky Advocate Top 20 Of 2021

"Peated whiskey is an ancient Irish style, but it’s harder to make than you might think. Teeling’s master distiller Alex Chasko ascertained that only malt as heavily peated as Ardbeg’s would enable the peaty flavors to withstand the large fraction eliminated by triple distillation. That decision delivers a superb subtle smokiness, which when put together with bourbon and sauternes casks creates a moreish whiskey alive with orchard fruit, panna cotta, and sweet floral notes, plus tangy marmalade and peppery spice. As distillers in Ireland dig deeper into peaty whiskey, you can bet on this bottle of smoke to make your day."
