Greg Dillon Notes

Nose:

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.
 

Palate:

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.
 

Finish:

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.

 

Overall:

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

Nose:

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.
 

Palate:

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.
 

Finish:

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

Overall:

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.
