Teeling Single Grain Irish Whiskey. Image courtesy Teeling Whiskey Company. This Irish single grain (distillery not specified, but presumably from Cooley) was matured in California red wine casks. The nose has a nice balance of allspice, cardamom, and ginger spices along with red apples, a touch of red grapes, honey, and milk chocolate. The taste starts off peppery and intense, with a mouth-watering raspberry jam note coming out as the spices start to fade along with touches of red grapes, oak, and a slight ashiness. The finish is long and dry with fading spices, honey, and a touch of oak tannins. Very nice. (February, 2015)
