Teeling The Revival 15 Year Single Malt (Volume IV)
Teeling // Ireland
Released in November 2017, this 15 year-old single malt ages initially in ex-bourbon barrels. The whiskey then finishes its maturation for over 12 months in former muscat port barrels. It is bottled at 46% ABV with no chill-filtration. 10,000 bottles were produced for this release. The Revival Series from Teeling was initially launched to celebrate the opening of their distillery in Newmarket in 2015. This bottling is the penultimate release in the series with the Volume V expected sometime in 2018.

"The nose is lively, sweet, fragrant and fruity with pear drops, apricots, exotic fruits, vanilla and some floral notes in the background. The tropical fruits are still there in the mouth, along with juicy oranges, grapes, vanilla, toffee and sweet spices. Drier notes appear towards the end. Another beautiful expression from Teeling where the finish brings a very interesting influence to the spirit without overpowering the character of the whisky. Well done!"
