Teeling Pot Still Irish Whiskey is 50% malted and 50% unmalted barley that has been triple distilled and matured in American Virgin Oak, Bourbon casks, and Sherry casks. It is said to be created using the Dublin method, but I can’t find a lot of detail on what that actually means.
So no let’s get to the important part – enjoying it.
This Teeling Pot Still Irish Whiskey has a nice light golden straw color.
The nose is a mix of cereal with hints of cut flowers.
The mouth feel is clean, but as soon as the whiskey gets to my mid tongue it is all jangly and rough edged. There is a touch of leather and then the finish just takes those rough edges and pushes it to full throttle.
Is it drinkable? Yes, and it scored a 67/100, making it just barely into the Sip Worthy category – but I am grading it harder than I might have otherwise because it was $70 bucks, which is a lot of money. At the $70 price point I expect smooth, butter cookies from my Irish whiskey offerings.
- I’m always excited to try Irish Whiskey I haven’t had before.
- Pleasant nose that hints of cereal and cut flowers.
- Way too expensive at $70.
- Rough edges on the mid tongue and the finish.
- The nose is the best part.
