I had a bottle of Teeling Small Batch whiskey in my personal collection at the start of this year and was just blown away at the sheer quality of this whiskey at a Two Pooka price. Teeling Small Batch is a simple blend of grain whiskey and malt whiskey (As far as I know, the malt is from Bushmills?), but then, they are matured together in ex rum casks. It’s bottled at 46%, so beginners beware of the slightly stronger alcohol content. It’s adventurous and it works! The addition of the grain makes this a very easy drinking whiskey for beginners and as a Two Pooka Whiskey, Teeling Small Batch would be an ideal Pooka progression from say Black Bush as both whiskeys are blends of grain and Malt whiskey but with very different maturation influences. Compare, contrast and enjoy!

Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey
Since Teeling whiskey launched a few years ago, they have being the essence of Irish Whiskey innovation. Teeling Small Batch is typical of how Teeling innovate. A mix of grain and malt would be reminiscent of Black Bush but the Rum Cask maturation and stronger strength make this a completely different whiskey to its Northern cousin. Teelings are currently building their own new distillery in Dublin and I can’t wait to see what they start producing once their own new pot stills are up and running.
Teeling Small Batch Whiskey Tasting Notes
- Nose: Fruity with dried fruit and orchard fruit from the grain.
- Taste: Lively mouth feel with lots of fruit and spice. The higher alcohol quickly settles down to a nice warm full flavoured gingerbread tingle
- Finish: Long slightly sweet and slightly oaky and brown sugar finish .
Teeling Small Batch is a blend of malt and grain Whiskeys which are then combined for maturation in Rum casks to produce a Malt Blend Irish Whiskey that is packed with flavour. I’ve awarded Teeling Small batch a Two Pooka rating as it is a classic case of taking normal malt whiskey and working magic on it in order to produce a much more special whiskey. My rating is based on a bottle I bought in Dec 13 so I may revisit Teeling Small Batch in coming months. However, at a Two Pooka price, Teeling Small Batch Whiskey is incredible value for money.
