Teeling Whiskey 24 Year Old Single Malt. Image courtesy Teeling Whiskey Company.This whiskey was named the “World’s Best Single Malt” in Whisky Magazine’s 2019 World Whisky Awards, and spent 21 years in ex-Bourbon barrels before transferred to Sauternes wine casks for a final three years of maturation. The nose is fruity and aromatic with notes of green grapes, fresh berries, subtle touches of figs and dates in the background, and a hint of dried flowers. The taste is thick and nectar-like with citrusy tartness and touches of white pepper, dried flowers, honey, and vanilla. The finish is long, tart, and well-balanced with a nice fruitiness. Excellent!
