Teeling Whiskey Company have just announced a special release of 4,000 bottles of a Teeling 28-year-old single malt, that is to be exclusively sold through the Celtic Whiskey Shop.
This 28-Year-Old Single Malt is one of the eldest Irish single malts to be released, sitting in the upper echelons of age with the Teeling 30 and 33-year-old single malts.
This expression is quite interesting as it is the generational continuation of the original lightly peated Teeling 21, which became the World’s Best Single Malt Teeling 24, now released with 4 years extra sauternes cask maturation. These three expressions come from the same batch of 1991 distillate that has now been maturing for over 28 years, firstly in ex-bourbon barrels and finished for the past 7-8 years in sauternes wine casks.
This whiskey is said to have a nose of white peach, fresh cut grass, white chocolate with hints of toasted almonds. While the palate is said to be silky smooth with ripe peaches, honey, smoked sea salinity and subtle spices on the tongue. The finish is said to be long and mellow with a continuation of sweet spice.
This is exclusively on sale through the Celtic Whiskey Shop, link to purchase here, with an RRP of €500.
It is bottled at 46% ABV without Chill Filtration.
