Teeling Wonders of Wood Single Pot Still Chinkapin Oak Whiskey pushes the boundaries of Irish whiskey. This limited-edition bottling uses unique Virgin Chinkapin Oak casks to mature a triple-distilled single pot still whiskey, resulting in a bold and flavorful expression unlike any other.

Description

Aroma

The initial nose challenges your expectations of Irish whiskey. Unlike the usual emphasis on honey and vanilla, Teeling Wonders of Wood leads with a surprising note of soft oak. Imagine inhaling the scent of freshly opened wooden furniture – it’s dry, slightly sweet, and hints at the whiskey’s time spent maturing in these unique casks. This oak influence sets the stage for a more complex experience.

Following the oak, familiar Irish whiskey notes emerge, but with a twist. A hint of caramel sweetness is present, but it’s subtle and doesn’t overpower the oak. Imagine the faint aroma of vanilla wafers, adding a touch of creamy sweetness. However, this sweetness takes a backseat to the surprise element – a kick of spice. Imagine a whisper of white pepper tingling in your nose, followed by a gentle warmth from ginger. These unexpected spices are a hallmark of the Chinkapin Oak cask influence and add an intriguing layer of complexity to the aroma.

Palate

The first sip confirms the boldness promised by the aroma. The soft oak character translates beautifully onto the palate, offering a dry and slightly tannic texture. Don’t be afraid, though – this tannic quality isn’t harshness; it’s a sign of the whiskey’s unique maturation and adds depth to the experience.

As the oak subsides, a wave of spice washes over your tongue. This isn’t the overpowering spice of a rye whiskey, but a delightful interplay of flavors. Imagine a tingle of white pepper on your tongue, followed by a gentle warmth from the ginger detected in the aroma. They add complexity and intrigue, keeping the flavor profile interesting.

Midpalate

As the whiskey lingers on your tongue, subtler elements emerge. A hint of nutmeg might appear, adding a touch of warmth and baking spice character. This is followed by a surprising note of peach.  Imagine a fleeting sweetness of ripe peaches that cuts through the spice and oak, adding a touch of unexpected refreshment. This interplay between sweet, spicy, and oaky notes is what makes Teeling Wonders of Wood so captivating.
