On the nose, ripe red fruits, figs, cinnamon and toffee. To taste, silky richness accompanied by toffee apple, dried fruits and rosewater notes with cinnamon and clove spice on the tongue. Dry finish, with a return of the spices and hints of maraschino cherry.

The first release in a brand new range from Teeling! This is an 18 year old Irish single malt release for The Renaissance Series, which follows on from Teeling's award-winning The Revival Series. Released in celebration of the ongoing Renaissance of Irish whiskey, Dublin whiskey and Teeling themselves, this expression was firstly matured in ex-bourbon barrels before enjoying a finishing period in ex-Madeira casks, imparting rich, fruity sweetness. 9,000 bottles were produced.
While the Teeling Distillery of today was officially opened in 2015, the brand’s history in Irish whisky actually stretches back to 1782, when a chap called Walter Teeling set up a distillery in the Liberties area of Dublin. Fast-forward to the present (not forgetting the era when John Teeling owned the Cooley Distillery, before selling it to Beam in 2011) and the Teelings are again at the forefront of Irish distilling. Identifying as a ‘progressive’ distillery, the team, led by Jack Teeling, his brother Stephen, and master distiller Alex Chasko, are leading the Irish whisky innovation charge. From the ‘re-imagined’ Dublin porter recipes and proprietary fermentation techniques used to create the Teeling wash to the three different stills in operation, the team pushes what’s possible in Irish whisky-making to create delicious drinks. This pioneering attitude is underscored by the fact that a whopping 25% of annual production is dedicated to whisky experiments. Exciting stuff.
