Teeling Brabazon 01 Review

Hi everyone,

Another whisky from Teeling today. I’ve tried a few of their whiskies now and generally find them to be very good Irish whiskey’s.
This one is a single malt and a vatting of 6 Sherry casks, not distilled at Teeling remember as they don’t quite have any of their own whisky yet.

Teeling Brabazon 01 49.5%
Colour: Gold
Body: Medium
Nose: Fruity sweet shop, restrained sweetness, a little raisin, this nice musky earthy tobacco note, red berries. Lighter as it opens up.
Taste: Soft, restrained sweetness, cherry, some cherry sweets, orange liqueur, biscuit, creamy then dry.
Finish: Long length. Malt, biscuit, dry and lightly earthy oak.
A nice restrained level of sweetness here with some good earthy flavours too, but it’s a little too light for me.

Thanks for reading!
