This young Teeling was marketed especially for our friends at the Whisky Club Luxembourg. Take a moment to note that it is at 62.6% ABV. Then grab your fire extinguisher. Note also that it is a sister cask of the one we just tasted for the Dutch shop Drankdozijn.

Tropical fruit with a lot of honey and a candy-like side. That's the nose of this Teeling in a nutshell. Pineapple, a hint of banana, peach and apricot, quince and pineapple on the BBQ. This is really great. And as Irish as can be.

Nice and creamy on the tongue and again that almost perfect integration of alcohol. We are talking about almost 63% here and yet it does not need water to enjoy it (provided, of course, that you approach him with the necessary respect). Tropical fruit without any doubt. I can already see the palm trees and blue sea in front of me, and in the meantime the wood is also doing its bit by offering a little white pepper and a lot of licorice. Amazingly, I don't have any herbal notes here – something I normally have with single pot still. That must be due to the dominance of the cask.

The finish is long, sweet, spicy, warm, delicious...

I think this one is just a tad better than the sister cask for our Dutch friends, but yeah... I don't work with half points. But what an excellent Teeling. Thx, Benny!
