Teeling 13 Year Old Single Grain
- Country of Produce: Ireland
- Whiskey Type: Single Grain
- ABV: 50%
- Bottle Volume: 70cl
The 13-Year-Old release consists of triple distilled Irish whiskey distilled predominantly from maize, initially matured for 9 years in ex-Bourbon barrels before being given extra maturation for over 4 years in ex-Bordeaux Red Wine casks and bottled at 50% ABV to capture all its natural flavour.
This release is only Teeling Whiskey’s second and oldest release of Single Grain. It follows on from the multi-award winning core offering of Teeling Whiskey Single Grain which was first released in 2013 and has been honoured on numerous occasions as the World’s Best Irish Single Grain. This new, older expression of Teeling Single Grain also differs through its dual cask maturation. The initial Bourbon cask maturation produces a beautiful base of sweet vanilla and caramel with buttery oak, which is then complimented by the extra aging in the Bordeaux Red Wine casks, layering on a beautiful bouquet of red berry and soft orchard fruits with honey notes. This new release adds another string to the bow of an exciting new sub-category of Irish and global whiskey with whiskey drinkers becoming more knowledgeable and interested in what Single Grain can offer.
Nose: Rose water, ripe cherries, cinnamon and red fruits
Palate: Summer fruits, berry jam, vanilla cream, soft orchard fruits with honey notes
Finish: Spice, dry tannins, toasted oak and lingering warm wood notes
