Irish single grain whiskey from Teeling! There are only an elite few Irish single grain whiskies out there at the moment, but Teeling went ahead and made theirs unique by maturing it in Californian Cabernet Sauvignon casks. Deliciously sweet with a good deal of spice and fruit hide within the Teeling Single Grain.
Nose: Honeyed apple flesh and red grape, sweet and slightly floral with fragrant vanilla and spice, evaporated milk and brown sugar.
Palate: There's treacle on the palate, but it's light and buttery with dried cranberry developing.
Finish: Into golden syrup tart and sweet egg custard now with spicy cereal.
Overall: This is a thoroughly enjoyable grain whiskey, sweet and fairly light but full of flavour.
