In Episode 48 - The Diving Girl of Oiso Bay, we reviewed an Irish whiskey distilled in Dublin: Teeling's Single Malt Irish Whiskey.
In 1782, a man by the name of Walter Teeling setup a craft distiller on Morrobone Lane in the Liberties area of Dublin. In so doing did he commence a 230 year tradition of distilling for the Teeling family.
In Episode 48 we tasted Teeling's highly anticipated Single Malt Irish Whiskey.
Vatted in a combination of Port, Madeira, White Burgundy, and Cabernet Sauvignon casks, you may not be surprised to find some of the standby flavors one comes to expect in many whiskies: oak, vanilla, and a cashew nuttiness. But there's more here, especially on the nose. The influence of the wine casks presents in a delightful symphony of fruit. Here we find, apricot, raspberry, cranberry, and even mango.
The finish is smooth and long, and leaves you feeling like you've just finished at great meal. Indeed perhaps the best use for a whiskey this fruity and sweet, is as an after dinner treat.
Regardless of how or when you choose to enjoy Teeling's Single Malt Irish Whiskey, one thing is for certain: you'll be in for a wonderful tasting experience.
