Words of Whisky:
Nose: Apple sauce, red fruits, clementines and a touch of menthol and chalk, maybe even a whiff of pralines. Then we take a turn into stone fruit territory, mainly peach and nectarine pith.
Taste: Lovely fruitiness and I like how well-integrated this is. Never does the wine take over. There’s citrus fruits, plenty of strawberry, some mango and then Maraschino cherry, but then some powdered black pepper as well. Maybe not quite as rich as I’d like, but very good still.
Finish: Lingering juicy red fruits. Medium in length. Drying. Finally a touch of chocolate.
The Teeling 18yo Renaissance Series No. 2 strikes a good balance between ex-bourbon maturation and the finish in wine casks. Especially the vibrant, citrus fruitiness impresses.
