Dublin’s finest.
 
Jack Teeling founded the Teeling Whiskey Company in 2012, with a mission to challenge the norm by crafting Irish Whiskey with more depth of personality and character than the current mass-market options, and to become Ireland's leading independent Irish Whiskey producer. Jack Teeling comes from a family with a long tradition associated with Irish Whiskey. Take for example the Cooley Distillery, which was founded by John Teeling, and Walter Teeling in 1782, setting up a distillery on Marrowbone Lane in Dublin.
 
Teeling’s way of doing things is perhaps a tad unorthodox. They blend, age and bottle Whiskey from different sources much in the form of Scottish independent bottlers. And that is the reason why we are so fond of their work. Not only are they the first ones to open a new distillery in Dublin in decades, they also do things with a new perspective and give the traditional Irish Whiskey a new style.
 
Teeling Single Grain is aged in ex-Cabernet Sauvignon red wine casks, not in ex-Bourbon barrels as one would presume. It’s predominantly corn grain based, which gives it a neat, sweetened character somewhat reminiscent of Bourbon. No chill filtration was used so all the natural flavors were preserved. A sweet, smooth sipper!

There are many Irish Whiskey varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known. Then there is Poitin, one of the first spirits ever made.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Rich gold 
 
Smell / Nose
A slight smell of corn, with a mix of fruity and spicy aromas tingling around the presence of vanilla and dark chocolate.
 
Flavor / Taste / Palate
Dry and spicy in the first stage, when later all sorts of different aromas come to mind from cranberries and plums from the use of red wine cask to the more rounder softer notes of honey and butterscotch. 
 
Finish
The fusion of all the above stated aromas finish in a long dry grain based, malty conclusion that surprises but goes away with satisfaction.

Matt
Matt,
Really liked it a ton. Good flavor and good sipping
 
Sam
Sam,
Combination vanilla caramel oak. What a wonderful Irish whiskey. I don't think I've ever had another in the category that compares.
 
John
John,
It had a certain sweetness that I enjoyed.
 
Stephanie
Stephanie,
Not for me
 
Brian
Brian,
Tasty. Enjoy neat, with whiskey rocks, with ginger ale, old fashioned, irish coffee.
 
Chris
Chris,
A Genuinely smooth sipping whiskey, too good to mix with anything. It has a full flavor profile that may be a bit more on the sweet side.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Nectar of the Irish Gods. If my father was still with us, he would confiscate it.
 
Michael
Michael,
Up till now, this is the closest that I get to a Redbreast 12. The very nice difference is the wine influence and the bigger punch in the face by the spiciness. There is less oak influence than with the Redbreast 12 but it's there. A very nice dram. I think I'll buy this one again.
 
Susan
Susan,
I haven't received it. The order was placed on May 2nd. What is wrong here?
Evin
Evin,
Email Flaviar directly at SUPPORT@FLAVIAR.COM - I had the same thing happen to me and they were very responsive (within 24 hours) to get it sorted out. After I contacted them, I received my bottle within a week.
Micah
Micah,
Well rounded Irish whiskey, warm, smooth, and mellow. Great sipping whiskey (with a splash of water of course).
 
Jason
Jason,
A very smooth whiskey, no bite at all. Very nice to sip although I prefer something with a little more flavor.
 
Dave
Dave,
Smooth flavor. Better with a splash of water.
 
Jason
Jason,
Very tasty! More of a balanced profile, not close to the spice of a rye
 
Michael
Michael,
It's really very tasteless - in a blind taste test, I would have guessed it was vodka. Very disappointing.
 
NATHANIEL
NATHANIEL,
A decent Irish whiskey
 
Evin
Evin,
Smooth front and warm finish. Quite enjoyable while sitting on the back porch.
 
Bradley
Bradley,
I loved the taste. Very smooth, no bite
 
Jim
Jim,
This was one of the smoothest front end Irish Whiskeys I have tasted. Smooth on the front end with a creamy finish. I also loved that delayed warming sensation that a good whiskey causes. Highly recommended.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Really like it
 
Ralph
Ralph,
A bit more bite than expected. I didn’t get much fruit out of each sip either. Overall, a good blend though.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
This is a super smooth whiskey with a great flavor. Will purchase again!
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Its a nice smooth whiskey. I enjoyed the nice blend of vanilla, butterscotch, and cranberry that hits the tastebuds just right.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Very Smooth, with nice favors
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Its was great, wasnt as earthy as I thought it would be. But all in all me and some friends enjoyed it after dinner.
 
David
David,
Great flavor all the way to the end. Smooth and hints of amazingness.
 
Chris
Chris,
Smooth and natural taste. If your looking for something with less of a bite but good flavor this is it.
 
Eric
Eric,
Very smooth and quite delicious.
 
Justin
Justin,
Really nice sipper with good aroma. Reasonably priced, would purchase again
 
Ken
Ken,
Very good Irish Whiskey. Vanilla notes on the nose, smooth and spicy mouth feel with a fruity finish.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
This one has a nice aroma. Even though it's an Irish whiskey, It tastes like scotch to me. Pretty good flavor, but still has that bit in the back of my throat. Mixed with ginger ale it's pretty good.
 
Ashley
Ashley,
I really enjoyed this bottle! Smooth butterscotch notes that got better with each sip. Would definitely purchase again!
 
Robert
Robert,
I was frankly a little disappointed when i first opened the bottle. I found it harsh and unrefined. I had to have it over ice, perish the thought....The second time I tried it was better, but still it lacks complexity and refinement.
 
Paul
Paul,
Smooth, really nice sipping whisky with iceball
 
Jerry
Jerry,
thought I would give it a try for an Irish it is better than some just not my taste
 
Beau
Beau,
Clean, light, crisp, and smooth. This exceeded my expectations for a grain whiskey. Looking forward to working my way through this bottle.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Incredible sipper. Very well blended notes, nice balance of bite and butterscotch. Tried it as part of Teeling sampler pack at a store and immediately chose it for this quarter's package.
 
Steve
Steve,
I'm a believer. A lot going on with this sipper. Taste buds explode. The bite is awesome at the beginning and tapers off gradually until the end while the other flavors compliment it. What a ride!
 
Jason
Jason,
Surprisingly good!
 
Odessa
Odessa,
I am pleasantly surprised by Teeling. The aroma is just lovely, the slight bite up front to the smooth slightly creamy finish so, so nice.
 
Cory
Cory,
slight bite up front but is finishes smooth, loved the flavor.
 
Rick
Rick,
Very smooth; can pick up on the butterscotch. Fairly light, but a decent sipper.
 
Ray
Ray,
Very light and smooth start with a complex finish. I especially liked the fruit notes in the finish.
 
Robert
Robert,
Not sure where the idea comes from that it is a sweet, smooth sipper. My bottle was quite oakey and harshly spicy on the palate. I added an eyedropper of water to tame it, then it was OK. The wine cask maturation did not come through at all. Perhaps I got a bad bottle.
 
Cameron
Cameron,
The flavors are good but underwhelming. I wish they were a bit more pronounced.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Great Irish whiskey - had this at their distillery in Dublin, and it’s been a mainstay in my home bar ever since

Kiss
Kiss,
Very pleasant on the nose with honey and sweet butterscotch, but too spicy, harsh ethanol at first on the palate, it turns into nice round sweet aftertaste
 
Glenn
Glenn,
Teeling is one of my favorites. I love all whiskeys but prefer Irish. This is one of my top Irish goto's.
 
Haley
Haley,
My favorite whiskey! Really enjoyed some other whiskeys when I toured their facility in Dublin.

Really good with tons of flavors. Too bad it's not available anymore :(
 
Rebecca

Really alcoholic on the nose and a bite in the finish, but nice dry spice and vanilla flavor with a good body
 
Michael
Michael,
Great sweet grain whiskey
 
Bradley
Bradley,
Tons of flavor. Mostly a variety of rich ripe fruits.
 
Tim
Tim,
Thin and lacking much character. Personally my least favorite of the Teelings I’ve had the pleasure of tasting. Cheers
 
Luke
Luke,
Nose: buttery, alcohol, honey Taste: berries, sweet, burning strong finish
 
Scott
Scott,
Pretty smooth & decent complexity for how thin it is.
 
Ross
Ross,
I've only had a handful of Irish whiskies, but this one is my favorite thus far....I found it very light and sweet, ...almost floral/grassy on the nose. Light and sweet on the palate...warming. Finishes sweet and floral, but short. Not near as "heavy" as Redbreast and the like.
 
Scott
Scott,
Tasted strongly of diesel or petroleum products. Pretty hard to get past that to enjoy anything else.
 
Robert
Robert,
This is a nice Irish. Buttery and smooth with just a bit of back bite on the finish, it's good with a dram of water added to it.
 
Rick
Rick,
I've enjoyed a range of whiskeys lately, looking for those 'special' tastes that become a favorite. This is right at the very top. Glad to have 'discovered' it through the club.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Smooth. Clean. Tastes of butter, vanilla, spice. Great sipping whiskey.

Vanille et noix, un peu d'amertume en final. Agréable

One of the best Irish whiskeys out there. Not too sweet with oak and dryness on the finish. Live it. Better than Red Breast.
