Teeling Brabazon Single Malt Series 2
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). This bottling marks the second in the series and this bottling focuses on port wine finishing. Various sizes, types, and ages of port casks were used in the finishing of this no-age statement single malt. It is non-chill-filtered and bottled at 49.5% ABV. 12,500 bottles are available beginning in select Irish retailers before hitting other markets including select European, Russian, Australian, and Asian markets.

"The nose is thick and sweet with dark fruits, vanilla cream, chocolate, honey and sweet spices. The palate is finely balanced, with the port influence not overtaking the initial character of the spirit. Notes of red berries, toffee, brown sugar, spices, toasted bread and woody aromas. Medium finish with tannins, drier notes and a hint of coffee."
