Irish Whiskey in a Rum Cask. 

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 who setup a distillery on Marrowbone Lane in Dublin.

Teeling Small Batch Whiskey is Teeling's attempt to create the most interesting Blended Irish Whiskey. Have they succeeded? The Small Batch is a blend of malt and grain Whiskey, specifically 35% malt and 65% grain, which means it's quite high in malt content (good!). It's bottled without an age statement, however we've found out that they use Whiskeys aged from 4 to 7 years. What makes it extra interesting is a further 6 months of maturation in ex-Flor de Cana Rum casks, which imparts sweet molasses flavors and notes, yet, remains Irish in the core. Fantastic? Oh yes. Teeling is making great progress towards reigniting the craving for Irish Whiskey World-wide. We applaud.

guest,
I was happily surprised by the Teeling Small Batch. It is a sweet whiskey, with a strong taste of vanilla and apple crumble. Easy to appreciate and lovely to share.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
I was pleasantly surprised by how smooth and flavorful this whiskey was. This will be a permanent fixture in my home bar, keeping the bourbon company.
 
Erik
Erik,
Great Irish Whisky but I don’t think it is complex enough for my taste.
 
Deirdre
Deirdre,
The notes added by the rum cask make this a smooth drink. I wasn’t sure I’d enjoy this, but I think the non-chill filtered process makes for a robust flavor.

Sean,
Nice...a great first whiskey. This is coming from a confirmed bourbon fan.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Taste is amazing! A little spicy but wonderful flavors to accompany it! It is one that I will have in my cabinet all the time!

Joel,
Smooth and a little spicy. A medium finish. Tastes fantastic in an Irish Coffee.
 
John
John,
At first tasting, I wasn't a huge fan (I was tasting several other whiskeys and I didn't think it could match up well against the other)...After a second revisit, I warmed up to it. Overall a smooth taste and smooth finish. Light taste, nothing overwhelming. Definitely a good, casual whiskey.
 
Craig
Craig,
We didn't intend to drink more than half the bottle, but it went down so, so, so easy...and so we did. Super-smooth on the front, with just a little bite on the back, this is a VERY drinkable whiskey.
 
Chris
Chris,
This Irish whisky is incredibly smooth. It’s full of very pleasant flavors. I find them to be just sweet enough to make this a great everyday go to drink. It’s not as good as my favorite scotch’s, but very close. For the price it’s definitely worth trying and it’s a keeper in my cabinet.

Love this whiskey! It's a nice alternative to my Scotch obsession.
 
Bruce
Bruce,
An absolute favorite of mine. This is a perfectly smooth drink to pair with a conversation amongst family and friends. It is gentle enough that everyone will enjoy it though it has a wonderful set of flavors to be appreciated by those who will.
 
Charles
Charles,
Outstanding. Very smooth and an enjoyable easy drinking dram. I would have given it a 10 but it would need a bit more "kick" to it, but then it would not be as smooth.

Dave,
Love it. This is one of my staples since my wife brought it back from Dublin!

Smooth with nice finish. Good pour for the price

Peter,
I really like this! My wife brought some back from Ireland because she thought I'd like it. I guess she knows my taste. Smooth and "sipable" with lots of character. A bit young but all a part of it's charm.

Creamy honey, crisp apples and sweet, malty pastry crust finish. Will keep this around as an everyday Irish.
