What they say:

Our Flagship Irish whiskey and our attempt to create the most interesting Blended Irish whiskey. This small batch bottling consists of hand selected casks which are given further maturation in ex-rum barrels imparting extra character and smooth flavour unique to Irish whiskey. Bottling at 46% with no chill filtration completes an Irish whiskey of true character.



An inviting nose where vanilla and spice dances with bright sweet notes of Rum.


While being very approachable the influence of the rum cask and higher percentage alcohol creates a unique smooth, sweet, slightly woody marriage that sparkles on the tongue.


A sweet spice finish complimented by woody undertones.

What I say:

Dram #1 from the 2017 #WorldWhiskyDay Worldwide Whiskies tasting set from The Dram Team. This is Teeling’s signature dram and consists of blended grain and pot still Irish whiskey (from Cooley distillery) matured in rum casks.


Light straw gold (3/20) ultra-fine legs and fine tears


Quite spicy with green/fresh oak & sandalwood here, apple pie washed down with a vanilla latte coffee


Smooth, vanilla, cereal barley, crisp green apple, lemon & rose Turkish delight dusted with cinnamon


Medium-length caramel apple


A spicy and rich Irish blend with some well developed flavours

Score: 83/100
