最好的單麥芽威士忌的世界是一個愛爾蘭威士忌. Teeling 24 復古Reserve單一純審查.
我不能相信，僅6年來我第一次遇到一個Teeling威士忌. 在 2013, 我搬到布魯塞爾一年採取了新的任命在我的職業生涯, working for the EU Council so for the next year, I was also a regular visitor to the Irish Whiskey Collection shop in Dublin Airport.
The Teeling Whiskey Brand, launched by Jack Teeling in 2013, was firmly built around innovative and creative blending and finishing of their selected aged Cooley Whiskey stocks.
I have given my Irish Whiskey of the Year award to Teeling Whiskey twice in recent years. To Teeling Small Batch in 2013 and Teeling Brabazon 2, which typified their excellence in blending and finishing, 在 2017.
Teeling maintained momentum with the opening of their own Teeling Whiskey Distillery in Dublin’s Liberties in 2015. The distillery has just released its own very first Teeling-Distilled (單鍋仍) whiskey expressions in recent months; the first of a new generation of Dublin Distilled Teeling Whiskey.
If my memory serves me correctly, I bought my first ever two bottles of Teeling Small Batch in March 2013 along with my first two (of my eventual five bottles) of one of Teeling’s initial Super-Premium offerings. This was a partially peated 21 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey finished for a year in Sauterne Casks and beautifully presented in a bespoke wooden display stand.
This was one of the very first premium Irish whiskeys that I bought to review on my new Irish Whiskey blog here at IrishWhiskey.Com. 看到 Teeling復古儲備 21 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey Review from November 2014 for the original article.
As you can see from that early Teeling Whiskey blog review, I was very, very happy with my purchase. So happy, that I went on to buy several more bottles of Teeling 21 that year as gifts for my whiskey friends in Brussels. I wondered aloud at the time about the potential of taking this already superb and quite unique Irish Whiskey to even great heights by leaving it mature for another while in the Sauterne Casks.
As I said in my original 2014 blog on Teeling 21, the ideal whiskey for a wine cask finish would probably be the “blank canvas” of a nicely aged single grain whiskey. The more robust flavours and character of a Single Malt or Single Pot Still, will often need much more time for a wine cask to fully tame, influence, soften and complement the power of an aged malt whiskey. Therefore, I am quite sure that I would not have been alone then in wondering what extra magic an extra few years in the Sauterne Casks would bring.
And so to the subject of today’s story, Teeling 24 Year Old Vintage Reserve Single Malt irish Whiskey. As you should have guessed by now, Teeling 21 和Teeling 24 are in fact one and the same whiskey which was first distilled in 1991 and aged for 21 Years in Ex Bourbon Casks before being finished in Sauterne Wine Casks. 該Teeling 21 that I had originally bought and reviewed in 2013 was bottled on 17 七月 2013 after one year of finishing, whereas the subject of today’s great story is its twin expression which was left at home to mature for an additional three years in the sweet wine Sauterne Casks before being bottled in August 2016.
在今後幾年裡, 當書已經寫了關於愛爾蘭威士忌文藝復興, 我絕對相信，這 2019 在世界獎獎最佳單一麥芽會被視為在全球威士忌市場的關鍵成果指標和力量促成了愛爾蘭威士忌行業作為一個整體.
這個獎項不是僥倖或 “曇花一現” 成功. 見證創新和創造力的堅實的業績，因為我已經從Teeling小批量已概述, 通過他們的葡萄酒區和復興表達自己最近的布拉巴宗 1 和 2 表達式.
在所有對這個不可思議的成就鋪平了道路發揮了作用，並全部是由技術驅動, 貢獻, 商業- 勇氣和傑克和斯蒂芬Teeling的決心, 他們的釀酒大師和威士忌梅斯特, 亞歷克斯Chasko和Teeling威士忌團隊的其他成員. 在談到上週的勝利, 傑克Teeling, Teeling威士忌的創始人和董事總經理:

“我們也非常自豪，我們已經創造了球隊, 這個獎項證明了創意, 辛勤工作和員工的奉獻都在這裡在愛爾蘭和世界各地, 我想感謝他們幫助我們實現這個願望。“
這Teeling 24 非常小批量裝瓶是在世界各地選擇的市場，包括愛爾蘭提供, 我們, 比荷盧經濟聯盟, 德國, 瑞士, 澳大利亞和一些亞洲市場. 我還沒有品嚐Teeling 24 但Teeling自己的新聞稿中描述為:
“老化過程和獨特的愛爾蘭氣候的組合產生一個非凡威士忌用複雜而絲般光滑味道, 結合圖果醬的口味, 蜜糖, 杏子, 和白巧克力和清脆的鹹味在結束時平衡了甜頭了。”
我想我個人的祝賀傑克, 斯蒂芬, Alex和整個Teeling威士忌隊誰所有例證是最好的關於新的愛爾蘭威士忌行業. 持續的成功和良好的祝愿大家從最早的球迷之一.
