Irish Whiskey Magazine - Tastings - Teeling Brabazon Vol 1

Teeling Brabazon Vol 1

Greg Dillon Notes

Nose:

Even the nose is thick… fresh fruits, lots of apples, caramel, hint of vanilla oak. Very, very nice.
 

Palate:

Fantastic palate; lots of fresh apples, pears, wine notes,
butterscotch, red cherries, mango, melon, some hints of fruit cake, like a basket of fruity brilliance being wrapped in cayenne and white pepper spices. Creamy, thickens in the mouth as you sit with it – a chewing whiskey.
 

Finish:

Medium length, spices carry through along with hints of
fruit. Now, where’s the next drop?

 

Overall:

So much flavour; those fruits,spices, creamy notes are utterly brilliant – I went into this dram expecting
a lot from it, but man did it deliver. Great work, likely from some quite diverse cask inputs into the blend. 

 

Michael Foggarty Notes

Nose:

There is a good dollop of Oloroso swishing around, a fruit and nut chocolate bar glides past.
 

Palate:

Mouth coating and chewy, the sultanas and hazelnuts from the chocolate bar are less pronounced here but the cocoa is in abundance. There is a waft of creamy cigar smoke tingling the taste buds.
 

Finish:

Medium length. As the palate dries the fruits become more evident.
 

Overall:

Not your usual full forward sherry punch but much lighter and slightly more elegant.
