Greg Dillon Notes


Now this is something special, something unique, and a little different than what I was expecting on the nose to be honest; pears, cigar ash and toffee apples engulfed my nostrils. Incredible. Nice and sweet, could spend a fair amount of time just nosing this one.


Creamy, thick, exotic fruits develop such as pineapple, a subtle smokiness, but not overtly in any way. And subtle notes of star anise and cinnamon present too; definitely spicy, white pepper, very juicy. Oh wow this is a good whiskey.


Medium to long length on it, the juices from the palate combine with the white pepper to ease you through to the end of the whiskey. Nice.



A lovely, interesting whiskey here, really special in both flavour and depth, each time I sipped I got something different and the nose was bordering on divine.





Stuart Irvine Notes


Orchard fruits and rich malt. Quite intense and may need a little water to open it up a touch. Quite a sweet whiskey with demerara sugar, cola cubes and orange barley sugar sweets. A little dusty note of old wood hovers just beneath the surface. Water does open the whiskey up with more fruit that’s becoming a little drier.


Deep, rich, sweet arrival that’s accompanied by hints of the old oak that was present on the nose. Fruit flavours have a slight tropical feel to them along with some lemon / orange oil. The older wood brings a little dry spice into play. Be careful when adding water as it thins out quite quickly but that you do get is an enhanced feel of the oak.


Medium length with a further display of age along with fruit salad.


Overall this is another good whiskey from Teeling. In truth I don’t think this hits the heights that were displayed by “Volume II”, but it is still solid enough in its own right. However, the fruit flavours do feel a little closed and I would say that, to obtain all you can from it, this whiskey needs a little time and attention, along with a very careful addition of water, to bring out its best form.
