Day Ten: Irish Whiskey Advent Calendar Countdown
DEC 10 – Teeling Whiskey Small Batch 46% Cost = $45 Score: B-
Nose: apple, vanilla, slight spice, caramel, honey, lemon, can get the rum notes – the alcohol is present on the nose
Taste: dark caramel sweetness, spice, dark chocolate
Finish: tingly on the front of the tongue, wood spice, white pepper, good medium length
Overall: approximately six year old whiskey finished in rum casks for six months; not too much complexity here – like the Teeling Single Malt better
