General description

Gentle, fragrant and care required...

Nose

Patience is needed on this one. It takes a while for the nose to bring much of anything other than an initial sweetness. Then, molasses unsurprisingly and then the rum influence brings raisins and... well, a light, almost airy rum baba scent. Does the rum cask work? A bit initially and then pretty well, and a big 'thumbs up' for trying something different. Perhaps, not quite stellar yet... Interestingly, my wife finds strawberries and then something slightly floral right at the tail-end of the nosing... Maybe more to come.

Palate

Inital spice and molasses again and more sweet sugariness coming from the signature Teeling sweet taste and then from the rum casks, which have a bigger influence on the palate. On successive tastings, the rum influence grows until there's really not much else, but perhaps that was the point: to make a straightforward high-quality, smooth whiskey that merges into rum. Job done.

Finish

Longish with the sugars holding and no bitterness or dryness at all. A satisfying steady end (with a little chocolate and vanilla pod coming through at the close) to a very decent whiskey for my 100th tasted...

General description

Powerful, balanced, delicious

Nose

It's actually hard to describe, it accelerates just before you work it out.

Palate

Bittersweet, well composed. Rum is not overpowering, bitter again near the end. Very interesting whisky.

Finish

Long, nice burn, bitter.

General description

A nice affordable Irish Whiskey that isn't Jameson, and it's much better. But for the price and range I would go Bushmills 10 over this.

Nose

First up, It smells thin. The Rum Cask influence is definitely noticeable, but it smells like a light underproof Rum. Some shininess, and a little fruit appears as it starts to settle down. Metallic, strong vanilla cream and shortbread with a nice Ripe fruit mustiness, also felt tip pen.

Palate

No where near as thin as the nose or as shiny. Sweet fruits and a little vanilla arrive first but only briefly as it quickly builds in intensity to a spicey and almost harsh bitterness. Dark cocao, unripe banana and Salt. Then it starts to settle

Finish

A little watery, salty, biscuits and harsh Rum. But it does have a long drawn out finish of wood, dark dark chocolate and cream. It leaves a metallic, bitter note in the mouth.

General description

This is a small batch Irish Whiskey that is aged in rum casks. 46%Abv. Ive had this in the past but I wasn't a big fan, lets see if thats changed.

This is good and has been redeemed in my eyes. The rum adds some nice textures that makes it different from the rest of Irish Whiskey. Definitely worth the pick-up.

Rating: 75/100, +/- 0 for value price is justified, and is available everywhere, Final:75/100.

Nose

You can definitely smell the Rum influence.

Pineapple, apple, mangoes, coconut, honey, gingerbread, maltiness, pear, vanilla.

Palate

apple, pineapple, gingerbread, coconut, maltiness, milk chocolate, Graham crackers, pears, and honey.

Finish

pineapple, pear, Graham crackers, honey.

General description

A bit reserved and hot. There is caramel but behind the heat of the alcohol. Its is "grain and malt whiskey, initially aged in ex-bourbon casks for up to 6 years, and then married together for more than 6 months in ex-rum cask from Central America" a bit unbalanced between the grain and the malt. Would not be my go to. RRP€39

Nose

Hints of rum wood.

Palate

Hotter than its 46% but that might be the grain. Some caramel but struggling a bit behind the spice.

Finish

Long hot and tingly.

Fresh citrus with slight note of dried fruit on the nose, followed by faint damp foliage under marshmallow. Sweet cream with slight citrus on the tongue accompanied by spicy notes which quickly assert dominance, lingering for long minutes on the tongue afterwards with hints of the sweet lemon hiding beneath.

General description

A crossover between Irish smoothness and Caribbean sweetness. The rum flavours are more upfront here than in any other rum finished whisky I've tasted thus far. Excellent price / quality.

Nose

The rum finish is obvious. Vanilla, white grapes, green apples and a touch of cinnamon. Fresh and slightly zesty.

Palate

Nice, creamy mouthfeel. Rum 'n raisins, vanilla, dark Honey, brown sugar coated almonds. Smooth. Juicy toffee.

Finish

Sweet, green apples with a woody edge. Again with prominent rum flavours.
