Teeling 28 year old Vintage Reserve, 46%

Price: $588 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

After marrying in sauternes casks for many years, this bourbon-matured 1991
distillate has become epic stuff. Aromas of dried apricot, cooked apple, roasted
aromatic spices, red grape, candied peel, dried fig, smoked butter, and singed
fruitcake. The palate purrs like a contented cat. It's dark and syrupy, with treacle,
cooked plum, a touch of peppery spice, and a medicinal finish of cough drops and
aniseed. (4,000 bottles) €500
