Teeling Vintage Reserve 21 Jarige Single Malt Ierse Whiskey – Silver Bottling
30 November 2014
Teeling have taken a partially peated 21 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey distilled in 1991 en het dit nog 'n jaar van veroudering in sauterne Wine vate gegee voor bottelering dit op 46% ABV. This Teeling Reserve Vintage Silver Bottling Expression is a small batch Irish Whiskey limited to just 5,000 bottels.

Ek het 'n paar ander resensies oor dié lees 21 Jarige Single Malt en ek wonder of hulle dieselfde whiskey as my was die hersiening? This is a quite polished and unique offering from Teeling that does not fit easily into any of the existing Irish Whiskey models.
It was originally distilled in 1991 with a small amount of peated malt added to the mashbill. It was aged for 21 years in ex Bourbon Casks before being finished for a year in Sauterne Wine Casks. It was then bottled by the Teeling Brothers (Jack and Stephen) in July 2013 as a Small Batch Release of just 5,000 bottels.
Teeling Vintage Reserve 21 Jarige Single Malt Ierse Whiskey – Stuart se Proe Notes
- neus: Powerful oak and deep vanilla with hints of burnt wood, gentle peat, dark honey and coarse cut marmalade.
- smaak: Luscious, full creamy malty mouth feel with warm mixed spice.
- afwerking: Long with spice yielding to a deep rounded malt and just a hint of salt after taste.
I first tasted Teeling Vintage Reserve 21 Year old a year ago while passing through Dublin airport on my way over and back to my new home in Brussels. I was surprised by the warm but light smokiness reminiscent of an aged, but lightly peated Springbank.
Ek hou dit so baie dat ek dadelik gekoop het 'n paar bottels vir myself en 'n paar vriende. In werklikheid, Ek het klaar die laaste druppel tydens die skryf van hierdie resensie!
I’m proud to declare myself as an “early adopter and champion” of this exciting new Irish Whiskey company as I’ve just noticed that my last remaining bottle is Bottle Number 361 van 5,000!
This is a very, very, special Irish Whiskey, which I think has all the marks of a future classic. I’ve always felt that wine cask finishes work best on the lighter, more neutral chassis of a well aged single grain. With the more robust flavours of fortified wines such as Sherry and Port, It can be quite easy to “over cook” a finish by leaving it for too long. But not with wine casks paired with an aged and intense Single Malt such as this (IMHO).
While the Sauterne finish lends some sweetness and polish to a very fine single malt, I feel that this 21-year-old Irish Whiskey diamond can possibly be polished to even greater perfection. It would be interesting to see what another year or two or more in the Sauterne Casks would add to the already superb presentation to bring even greater depths of rich character and polish.
uiteindelik, although this review is about the whiskey, I must also mention the quality of the presentation of bottle design, stopper, labelling, wooden bottle display case and packaging box. It really does make a most excellent Irish Whiskey Gift with a lot of “Voel goed” faktor!
Like I said, I’ve already bought two for myself and three as corporate gifts for friends in Brussels. Time to restock!
It’s very seldom, you get to buy a real piece of whiskey history in the making.
