Teeling Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey 46% 70cl
The Teeling Distillery wsa established in the Liberties area of Dublin by brothers Jack and Stephen Teeling in 2011 - their father John launched the Cooley Distillery in 1987, which broke up the monopoly from Irish Distillers who owned the only two remaining distilleries in the country up to that point. John Cooley relaunched brands such as Tyrconnel and also shook up the market by experimenting with cask types and flavour profiles to highlight how diverse Irish whiskey could become.
The Teeling family has kistory with whiskey in Ireland - back in 1782 Walter Teeling established a distillery on Marrowbone Lane in the Liberties region - at that time there were 37 distilleries in Dublin alone, most in the Liberties.
The Teeling Distillery itself didn't actually start producing spirit until March 2015, with the brothers cutting a deal with Beam International to aged whiskey from the Cooley Distillery that Beam had purchased in 2012.
'Pot Still' whiskey from Ireland is a type of whiskey that essentially seperates Irish from Scotch whiskies, if not those from around the world. Normally people will associate 'Pot Still' with the classic still shape, but here it references the use of both malted AND unmalted barley, the latter of which is also known as 'green' barley. The unmalted barley provides a fresh, lighter, slightly sweet, almost juicy flavour profile which I often pick up akin to blackcurrant Fruit Pastilles. To me it's the best representation of what delineates Irish whiskey from all others, and while blended whiskies such as Jamesons and Bushmills will incorporate some Pot Still spirit in their liquid 'standard' malt and other grain whiskies will also be part of that mix.
Maturation took place in a combination of Virgin oak, ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks - no age statement is given as this will be a marriage of multiple casks at differing ages. The end result is a whiskey with a remarkable complexity - there's cream, red and black fruits, a hint of black and white pepper, toffee, salted caramel, the list goes on.
