Since 1782 the Teeling family have been crafting Irish Whiskey. The Teeling’s are renowned for their vision in doing things differently and their Whiskeys embody this entrepreneurial spirit. This small batch bottling consists of hand selected casks which are given further maturation in ex-Flor de Cana Rum barrels imparting an extra sweet and smooth flavor unique to Irish Whiskey. By bottling at 46% with no chill filtration completes an Irish Whiskey of true character.
The eagerly anticipated Teeling Single Malt Irish Whiskey, made with 100% malt whiskeys. A selection of five wine-cask-finished-whiskeys were used for this release (some of which were distilled back in 1991), including Sherry, Port, Madeira, White Burgundy and Cabernet Sauvignon.
