Irish Whiskey Making a Splash in KL


The Teeling Whiskey Company has been distilling the water of life since 1782, and is the first to be operational in Dublin, where they’re based, since 1976. Their logo of a phoenix rising out of a pot still holds special meaning to them, as they are the embodiment of the whiskey industry reborn from the ashes of a failed industry from years before. Now, Irish whiskey is booming, and Teeling is at the forefront.

The whiskey is distilled in three beautiful giant copper pot stills – named Allison, Natalie, and Rebecca, after the daughters of Jack Teeling (the company founder) – from barley, then aged in casks that were previously used in sherry, port, Madeira, white Burgundy or Cabernet Sauvignon production.

Their range varies from non-age statement whiskies, to aged expressions of 21-years, 26-years, and 30-years. Malaysia will be stocking the Teeling Small Batch, Teeling Single Malt, and the Teeling Single Grain. All expressions are bottled at 46% with no chill filtration, and each one winning awards in their respective categories.

Teeling refers to the Small Batch as their flagship Irish whiskey – a blended whiskey which matures in ex-rum barrels that gives extra character and smooth flavour, with woody undertones and a spicy finish.

From the Premium range is the Single Malt, made from a vatting of five different wine casks (Sherry, Port, Madeira, White Burgundy, Cabernet Sauvignon) which gives it a flavourful mix of dry fruits, vanilla, and again a spiciness, plus a long sweet finish.

Lastly, the Single Grain. Matured in Californian red wine barrels, it carries distinct red berry and grape notes (not surprisingly), followed by a dry finish of wood and spice.

All three expressions can be found at Single and Available.
