Name: Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey

ABV: 46%

Proof: 92

Nose: Vanilla, Molasses, Nutmeg, and Oranges.

Palate: Rich molasses, caramel, vanilla, allspice, and deep smoky wood flavors.

Finish: Moderate and floral with light spice and wood tones.

Overall: This is a creamy whiskey that is perfect for those wanting an easy mellow sipper. The flavors are distinct and play well together. This is a whiskey that could definitely be enjoyed during a heavier dinner rather than after as the flavors compliment a variety of meal options. I really enjoyed the finish with this one; it was nearly perfect in my book. My final thoughts on Teeling Small Batch was that it is a great whiskey for those wanting something very smooth, simple, and light. Neat is the way to go with this whiskey.
