Es esmu izlasījis dažas citas atsauksmes par šo 21 Year Old Single Malt, un es brīnums, ja viņi pārskatot to pašu viskiju kā mani? 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 pudeles.

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.
Man patika tas tik daudz, ka es uzreiz nopirku pāris pudeles par sevi un dažiem draugiem. Patiesībā, Es beidzis pēdējais piliens, bet rakstot šo pārskatīšanu!
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 no 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.
beidzot, 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 “Justies labi” faktors!
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.
