Teeling Single Pot Still, 46%

Price: $75 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




Triple-distilled in Dublin, Teeling's debut single pot still expression is distinctive in its unusual 50:50 mashbill of malted to unmalted barley, adding an element of virgin American oak to deliver a charismatic quality and texture. The nose is reminiscent of cinnamon breakfast cereal, with delicate touches of melon and white grape, but it's the vibrancy of the cinnamon, nutmeg, and pepper at this perfect proof that most impresses, taking a decisive lead over the soft stone and orchard fruit and glossy caramel flavors. Number 15 in the 2020 Top 20
