|Name:||Teeling 2002 Port Wine Cask|
|Category:||Single Malt Irish Whiskey|
|Cask Type:||Port Pipe|
|No. of Bottles:||330|
A big basket full of green apples with some sour cherries and elderberries in between. Followed by more dark fruits. Then sultanas and almonds. Earthy undertones.
Oily and full-bodied. A mixture of sourish apples and sweetish grapefruits. Hints of lemon. Vanilla briefly appears before giving way to the spiciness of white pepper and hazelnuts. Dark chocolate.
Very long and strong. Hints of drying oak and white pepper. Fruits and earth.
Teeling makes some really good whiskey and this one is no exception. It would be really nice if we could have a port matured expression as part of their core range in the future.
Score: 88 / 100
