Tasting Notes

Nose: The nose offers an interesting combination of floral, orange, toffee, Sherry and spice notes. Water releases more cooked fruits and a suggestion of linseed.
Palate: Initially citric in the mouth, along with classic Irish oiliness, more profound notes of Sherry develop, along with fudge, vanilla and spice.
Finish: The finish is long, warming and spicy, remaining oily to the very end.

Teeling Blackpitts Peated Single Malt

Teeling Blackpitts Peated Single Malt

Irish Whiskey
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 46%

Teeling Blackpitts Irish single malt is the first peated whiskey from the Teeling distillery, one of the most exciting of Ireland's new wave distillers. This whiskey was inspired by the old Blackpitts district near the new distillery, which was once the home to some of the largest malting houses in Ireland.

Teeling Blackpitts whiskey is triple distilled in the classic Irish style, and this has subdued some of the medicinal notes associated with peated Scottish whisky. the whiskey for Blackpitts is then matured in a combination of two-thirds ex-bourbon and one third ex-sauternes casks before being bottled at 46% without colouring or chill filtration.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Inviting nose where barbeque smoke and cloves are intermingled with fresh notes of butterscotch and orange peel.

Palate: On the palate, a fascinating blend of Applewood smoke, honey and allspice are married with stewed pears and fresh grilled pineapple.

Finish: This whiskey finishes with the return of a savoury smoke over a lingering wood undertone, which combines delightfully with notes of salted caramel.
