Teeling – Single Grain Whiskey – Red wine cask – Tasting Notes

Nose
Citrus, cereal, spice, lemon curd, vanilla, maize, forest fruit, blackberries, grapefruit, pomolo, creamy, velvet and a bit grassy. The nose is very fresh and sweet and gives me the sense of being in a store filled with pastries and having a good fruitbowl.

Palate
Creamy and getting some fresh pomolo and grapefruit also on the palate combined with some pepper and some forest fruits. That combined with vanilla and raisins gives it a fresh and sweet palate.

Finish
The finish is smooth and has some citrus freshness/byte to it. But also the sweetness of the vanilla continues in the palate and gets a combination a bit in the end of the middle length finish of cereal and chocolate flakes with some orange juice on the side. The creaminess comes back as a mouthfeel at the end, bit milky feel.

Score
Giving this a 7,5 out of 10. Had a couple of other grain expressions and must say I have a hard time appreciating most of them. But this one surprised me, and this is definitely one I would love to have in the collection. It feels like a fresh fruity spring dram. Very nice! Teeling Single Grain is double distilled from maize and full matured in ex- Californian Cabarnet Sauvignon wine barrels. This is bottled at 46% with no chill filtration and no coloring added
