Irish distillery Teeling has unveiled their Teeling Whiskey Distillery Exclusive Irish Virgin Oak to celebrate St Patrick’s Day
Bottled at 46% without chill-filtration or caramel colouring, the Irish Virgin Oak offers a ‘distinctively different rich cream and honey’ flavour, the expression has been designed to explore the impact of Irish virgin oak.
Tasting notes include aromas of coffee, cacao and citrus peel leading to flavours of vanilla, caramel and oak spice. The finish is said to feature black peppercorns, cloves, oak tannins and vanilla.
“St Patrick’s Day normally marks the start of the traditional visitor season in Dublin and the Teeling Whiskey Distillery,” said Jack Teeling, founder and managing director of Teeling. “Given the unique challenges of 2021 we wanted to do something that would allow people to celebrate St Patrick’s Day with a very unique bottle of our distillery-exclusive whiskey.
“For our national holiday, we specifically chose Teeling whiskey aged in virgin Irish oak barrels to celebrate all things Irish and the unique influence Irish oak has imparted on our whiskey.”
Irish Virgin Oak is available exclusively from the distillery’s online shop teelingwhiskey.com
