Teeling 33 Year Old Single Malt Whiskey
consists of some of the oldest Irish Single Malt ever bottled making this an extremely rare release of Irish Whiskey. Distilled in 1983 and aged exclusively in two ex-bourbon barrels which after 33 years of maturation produced only 275 bottles at an alcohol strength of 42.9% straight out of the cask. To match its rarity, this historic bottling of Irish Whiskey produces a truly unique taste experience from its complex floral nose, to its deep layered flavours as a result of its 33 year journey and a long luxurious finish without being over oaked.
Teeling 33 Year Old Single Malt Whiskey is “the oldest bottling of Irish Single Malt recently released”, according to Teeling, and crafted from some of the oldest Irish Single Malt ever bottled.
Nose Vanilla, cream, orange, toast, jam.
Taste Light and fresh, well balanced sweetness blends into notes of vanilla, sandalwood, allspice, and orchard fruits.
Finish Deep and inviting as the spice comes back and then goes away again.
Dublin has traditionally been the heart of the Irish whiskey industry. During Walter Teeling’s time there were over 37 different distilleries in Dublin. The Liberties area of Dublin in particular was recognised as the epicentre for Dublin whiskey and was dubbed the ‘Golden Triangle’ due to the number of distilleries clustered in a one mile radius. During the 19th century Dublin whiskey became globally recognised as the Premier whiskey in the world.
Renowned for its “smooth” and unique “character” it sold at a premium to all other types of whiskey. As a result of this success some of the largest distilleries in the world emerged from these small craft Dublin distillers. Unfortunately as Irish whiskey fell on hard times so did distilling in Dublin and the last still ran cold in 1976 until now.
