Teeling Distillery Launches New Distillery Exclusive Whiskey
The new Teeling Distillery Exclusive Whiskey, finished in Chinkapin Virgin White Oak casks, is now available exclusively in the Teeling Distillery Gift Shop! This new release follows the trend of previous Teeling Distillery Exclusive whiskeys by being matured in unusual cask types. Previously, Teeling have had great success exploring the influence of different wood types with both Chestnut cask and Hungarian Oak cask finishes.
The most recent member of our Distillery Exclusive range is bottled at 46% ABV and finished in Chinkapin Virgin White Oak casks that have been sourced from Eastern and Central North America. The liquid has a sweet toffee and butterscotch nose, with a oily mouth feel and ripe dates, liquorice and wood spices on the tongue. For the finish, the wood spices remain on the tongue and are accompanied by black pepper and a lingering hint of liquorice.
Like the previous Distillery Exclusive bottlings consumers have the ability to personalise both the bottle and tube label. It’s ideal as a take home memento of your visit to the distillery, or as a nice personal gift! This rare bottling is available to buy in the Teeling Distillery Gift Shop for €60, with the personalised version costing €65.
