Teeling Vintage Reserve 24 Year Single Malt
Teeling // Ireland
Part of the Teeling's Vintage Reserve Collection, this single malt whiskey was distilled in 1991 and aged for 24 years in former bourbon casks. The whiskey was then transferred to barrels which previously held Sauternes wine, a French dessert white wine. A small amount of peated malt was part of the production of this whiskey. This hand-bottled expression comes in a luxury decanter and only 5,000 bottles are available for sale.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"Exotic fruits appear on the nose, along with hints of pastries like apple crumble and coconut flan. Also on the nose you'll find some pleasant nutty aromas, red fruits, candied figs, and subtle oaky notes. On the palate, the fruits kick in with mango, peaches and pineapple making it a real bowl of punch. The smokiness, or rather the peatiness, is now more obvious. The finish is medium length with lingering wood spices, earthy tones, and mango jam. "
