Teeling 21 year old Single Malt, 57.5%

Price: $250 Issue: Summer 2013 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

Whoosh! Jack Teeling's first golden arrow is this weird and wacky whiskey. Have you ever heard Jane's Addiction? This is to conventional whiskey what that band was to conventional rock. Finished in Sauternes casks, it's like nothing you've tasted from Ireland. All the Irish characteristics are there, but they're bent and twisted and put together in a new and exhilarating order. I wasn't sure at first. Now I'm begging for a refill just to make sure it all really happened.
