Proof66 Notes

Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey is aged not in ex-bourbon barrels--which is what is done in the great majority of Irish whiskey--but rather in ex-Flor de Cana rum barrels. This gives their whiskey an extra sweetness owing to the rum along with the signature vanilla and caramel of the oak.

Teeling Small Batch was named Best Blended Irish Whiskey in the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (out of 14 entries).

I found this rum to be airy and nuanced. Clean flavor with some grain and sweetness on top. Not super complex, but a few rum notes are present- and a touch of vanilla. It is interesting and pleasant, and the price is right.

My wife and I quite enjoyed this whiskey, sweet and rich smell off the cork and bottle, nice nose...the higher APV is what makes this an overall success, I found that this one gets better on the second glass, I generally expect less surprises and body in a Whiskey then in a Scotch, but this represents Dublin well, give it a shot definitely

A good offering from Ireland. Really a 3.5/5. Smooth and balanced. Great that it is bottled at 46% and non-chill filtered. Did not find any bitterness. In fact was looking for more body, however that is sometimes hard to find in an Irish Whiskey. Significant grain influence that overrides the malt. Would like more malt infuence. Overall I like it, including the bottle and labeling. Will likely have bottle on the shelf routinely.

Tastes bit like rum, possibly due to its aging in rum barrels. Unique taste, but not very complex and smooth.

Has a distinct nose of grain alcohol to me. There is some sweetness from the rum in the finish but a bit of a bitter aftertaste. May require a second tasting because I detect little going on except for mild sweetness from the rum along with alcohol and bitter aftertaste. Two stars for smoothness.
