Teeling | 46% | 70cl | Irish Whiskey | NCF | Limited Edition
Teeling’s Small Batch Amber Ale Cask whiskey is the result of a long-standing collaboration with Dublin-based DOT Brew. Teeling first gave DOT Brew their ex-rum barrels, which were used to make Teeling Small Batch Whiskey, to create DOT’s Brew Barrel Aged ‘Rum Red Dark’ Amber Ale.
Once DOT Brew was done with their beer maturations, the barrels were then sent back to Teeling. They then finished Teeling Small Batch whiskey in these ‘Rum Red Dark’ Amber Ale casks for another 12 months.
DOT Brew’s ‘Rum Red Dark’ beer is a well-rounded beer with dark fruit notes, hints of raisin, biscuit, vanilla, caramel, and a smooth treacle rum note. Teeling’s Amber Ale whiskey has captured a significant amount of these aromas and flavours to create a unique whiskey filled with natural character.
How’s that for exciting?
(This is exactly the same thing they did with Teeling’s Small Batch Galway Stout Cask in that collab – and if you liked the results of that, you will like this whiskey as well)
