Teeling 18 Year Old – The Renaissance Series 3

Teeling the Renaissance was first released in 2019 to celebrate the real global renaissance of Teeling.
The first release was a 18yo whiskey matured in ex-bourbon casks then finished in Ex-Madeira casks for 18 months.
The second release in the series  was instead finished in ex-Australian Shiraz wine casks.

This is their third release and as the previous ones its 19 years old and finished in ex-Muscat wine casks.
Bottled at 46% with no chill filtration and only 9000 bottles produced.
It comes in a luxarious package and the bottle is wide and thin instead of the classic shape bottles which makes
it stand out from the other whiskies in the cabinet.

I have been really hooked on the Irish whiskey lately. Tried a lot different sample releases from them and because my love to peated whiskey,
I really appreciated their first take on peated irish whiskey, it’s a success!
Doing a review on this one soon on instagram

Candy pear drops, fresh apricot and mango with a touch of mint

Teeling Blackpitts peated single malt whiskey

Statement from Teeling

Inspired by the old ancient Blackpitts area just behind the new Teeling Whiskey Distillery based in
Newmarket in the old Liberties area of Dublin City, this area was synonymous with many industries
and in particular malting houses.
Blackpitts was traditionally home to some of the largest barley malting houses in Ireland.
By using smoke from peat to dry the barley during the malting process, the resulting peated malt
produces a distinctive smoky taste profile which is the signature of a Peated Single Malt.

Teeling Blackpitts is the first peated single malt to have been distilled in Dublin and is the first peated whiskey by Teeling.
It is triple distilled from malted barley and dried over peat fires.  The triple distillation reduces some of the medicinal character
you would get from a traditional Scottish Peated Single Malt and allows the more barbeque smoke characteristic to shine.
Matured in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sauternes French wine casks.
Bottled at 46% with no chill filtration to produce a truly different and unique expression of Teeling and Irish Whiskey.
