The Belgian importer The Nectar celebrates its 10th anniversary with a couple of nice new releases. One of those is this single bourbon cask from 2002 by the Irish label Teeling. The cask was bottled in 2016 at 51,5%. The whiskey is very pale.

It is quite a fruit bomb on the nose with both white and more tropical fruit. I get melon, bigarreau burlat cherries, oranges and strawberries. The wood offers up some vanilla an cinnamon. Fresh and summery.

It is soft and sweet upon arrival, but immediately it turns quite piquant. Liquorice, cloves, cinnamon and even a chili pepper. The fruit evolves towards the candied variety. Mostly the bigarreau and oranges return, followed by a slice of dried pineapple.

It lingers on the palate in the long finish and wraps your mouth in a warm glow. At the death, it will leave your throat completely dry.

Wonderfully fruity whiskey. I’m pretty sure this is a Bushmills. The bottle sells for around 80 EUR.
