Teeling Single Grain Irish Whiskey

$45.99

Size
750ml, bottle

Teeling Single Grain Irish Whiskey pushes the boundaries of traditional Irish whiskey. Unlike most Irish blends that rely heavily on malted barley, Teeling uses 95% corn and 5% malted barley. This unconventional mash bill, triple-distilled and matured exclusively in Cabernet Sauvignon casks from California's Napa Valley, results in a truly unique expression.

Description

The first sip of Teeling Single Grain is a revolution on the palate. The initial wave of flavor is dominated by the promised spice from the aroma. It’s not overpowering, but rather a pleasant warmth that tingles on the tongue. But then, the sweetness of the corn starts to emerge, offering a delightful counterpoint to the spice. As you savor the sip, the red fruit notes detected on the nose translate beautifully, adding a juicy and vibrant dimension to the flavor profile. However, the Cabernet Sauvignon casks don’t just add sweetness; they also lend a touch of tannic dryness, a characteristic familiar to red wine drinkers. This dryness balances the sweetness and spice beautifully, creating a complex and unexpected experience that lingers on the palate.

The finish of Teeling Single Grain is a testament to its unconventional nature. The sweetness slowly fades, leaving behind a lingering warmth from the spice and a subtle dryness from the tannins. Unlike some Irish whiskeys known for their smooth, creamy finishes, Teeling Single Grain offers a clean and refreshing departure. It’s a lingering reminder of the unique journey you’ve just embarked on, a journey that challenged tradition and redefined what Irish whiskey can be.
