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.
|Cask Type||Ex-bourbon & Ex-sauternes|
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.
