Teeling Whiskey has released two new bottlings from its Vintage Reserve Collection – the Teeling 24 Year Old and the Teeling 33 Year Old Irish Single Malt.
The 33 Year Old release which is limited to just 275 bottles, is believed to be the oldest bottling of Irish Single Malt recently released, making it the world’s most exclusive 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. this release is accompanied with a booklet documenting its story and long affiliation with the industry, worked in cooperation with Dundalgan Press and Duffy’s Bookbinders.
The Teeling 24 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey was first distilled in 1991 and matured in Bourbon casks then allowed marry in Sauterne wine casks producing a wholly unique taste experience. The unique dual maturation imparts an extra depth of fruit flavours that perfectly complement the hint of smoke derived from the inclusion of a small portion of Peated malt as part of the original ingredients used in production. This small batch bottling, limited to just 5,000 70cl bottles, were hand bottled in unique decanter bottles and come with their own certificate of authenticity. Recently awarded the title of World’s Best Irish Single Malt, this is a whiskey to be savoured.
The Teeling 24 and 33 Year Old Single Malt will be available initially in the Teeling Whiskey Distillery, Celtic Whiskey Shop and Dublin Airport in Ireland retailing for €300 per 70cl for the 24 Year Old and €3,500 per 70cl for the 33 Year Old before being rolled out to the Benelux, France, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, Australia and select Asian markets in due course.
