Teeling Brabazon Single Malt Series 1
Teeling // Ireland
The Brabazon series was named as a tribute to the Brabazon family who once presided over the area of the Liberties in Dublin from the 16-19th century (where the current Teeling Distillery has been built). The first in the series, this bottling highlights Irish single malt aged in a variety of vintages, sizes, and styles of sherry casks. Non chill-filtered and bottled at 49.5% ABV, 12,500 bottles were produced and will first be made available at select retailers in Ireland beginning in May 2017. Other markets are expected to receive an allotment shortly afterwards.
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.
"Not your typical sherry bomb, the nose is much more subtle than expected, boasting notes of roasted nuts, toffee, apricot marmalade, kumquat chutney and cookie dough. Now in mouth, it feels deliciously sweet but still vibrant with juicy orchard fruits, hazelnut biscuits, citrus, blood orange, cloves, ginger and star anise. The finish is medium with something slightly vegetal and wood spices. "
