Regular price $119.99 Sale price $98.97 Save $21.02
The first edition in the Wonders Of Wood series.
Teeling's award-winning single pot still whiskey crafted from a recipe of 50% malted barley and 50% unmalted barley and triple distilled in their Dublin distillery
Fully matured in virgin chinkapin American white oak casks. Chinkapin oak is native to Eastern and Central North America with a wide grain and is similar to chestnut oak. When used for the maturation of Irish whiskey it produces a truly different taste experience layering on a distinctive gingerbread spice and banana cake sweetness unique to Irish whiskey.
In partnership with The Tree Council Of Ireland, the Wonders Of Wood series will help to plant exclusively native Irish tree species in our own designated acre of land in the Wicklow area of Ireland.
NOSE: Ripe red fruits, berries and pears with toasted wood and spice
TASTE: A balance of fruits and spice with oak tannins and burnt sugar
FINISH: Dry finish with honey, spice and lingering fruit notes
World's Best Pot Still Whiskey - World Whiskies Awards 2022
"The nose is quite earthy, with a touch of smoke. It shows a good, rich spirit character, with some rose petal notes. The palate opens with toasty oak and barley. It is zesty and fresh, with some citrus balanced by some sweetness. The palate has good depth, with hints of oily malt, spice and again youthful rose petal. There are lingering toasty oak and wood spices."

"Master distiller Alex Chasko selected wide-grain virgin Chinkapin American white oak casks to fully mature this batch of distinctive Dublin-made single pot still whiskey. The fresh oak has deeply etched its character on the spirit with savory and spicy aromas of roasted sweet chestnut, marron glacé, licorice, pecan, and treacle, followed by a deliciously yielding palate of black fruits, forest honey, clove, cola, and Brazil nut."

"A lovely fruity nose with wonderful notes of coffee and chocolate. The palate is more linear with an appealing spicy character and hints of citrus. Superbly characterful!"
"A bourbon-like sensibility...that comes, no doubt, from the exaggerated oak flavors. It’s still an Irish whiskey, but the prevalence of oak adds a sweetness and a nuttiness you don’t always find in other Irish whiskies." - The Whiskey Warsh
