Teeling 14 year old Brabazon Series 3, 49.5%

Price: $111 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Sourcing Pedro Ximénez casks used since 1918 at a bodega in Jerez, Teeling left this
whiskey to finish for 3 years. A bouquet of sweet red apple, black grape, dried fruits,
and blueberry, with sweet roasted cashews, dry spices, and a slight herbal edge. Blue
fruits, plum, cinnamon, and bitter chocolate are harried ferociously by spicy
peppercorn, leaving a finish of bruised orchard fruit. Add water and the fruit really
shines. (10,000 bottles) €95
