Insider knowledge: Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey is named whiskey by virtue of the fact it's from Ireland. If distilled in Scotland the spelling would be Teeling Small Batch Irish Whisky, as opposed to whiskey.
Nose: Cut grass and orange blossom. Allspice, hints of vanilla, apple pie and blackberries.
Palate: Spiced, rich palate with rose petal jelly and lemon curd. Creamy vanilla, hints of dried herbs and cinnamon.
Finish: Floral, herbal finish. Caramel on the tail.
Overall: A deliciously creamy, spicy and rich Irish blend.
I have liked Pot Still whiskey better than malt Irish. For example Redbreast 15 year was for me the best. My first taste of Teelings taught me better. A mast can doesn't have to taste like Scotch or Scottish malt. It can have its own character and taste. What is compelling about Teelings in the full bouquet of tastes and flavors. And the long lasting after taste. If you demand a sipping whiskey whose flavor is full, but not peaty, this is the whiskey for you. It is excellent and something new. Try it.

Remarkably smooth with a perfect finish. One of my favourites in quite some time.

The above review was meant to be for "Feckin Irish Whiskey". I happen to like Teeling very much.

I don't know if the recipe has changed since 2013, but this is NOT $40 good. Get one of the bigger name Irish whiskies that's been in the game longer, you'll be much happier.
The aroma is beguiling. I love the texture on the palate, which I prefer to non-chilled filtered whiskies. There's a pleasant oily residue on the tongue. And I don't find the 46% abv overpowering at all. Along with Laphroiag, my favoured whiskey.

Even when I might not actually drink this Whiskey, I sometimes open the bottle and enjoy the splendid Rum tinged aroma. The Whiskey itself is so drinkable, smooth, warm vanilla and spice, and then the Rum aftertaste lingering makes it even more special. I have sampled a number of new (to me) Whiskeys in the past few weeks and this one really stood out. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

I get really fed up with whiskey snobs "I only drink malt" Get a life!! I have been drinking whiskey for over 40years, (im 46....not!) This is a great whiskey, however at 46abv (92proof for our colonial drinkers) it needs a splash of water to release the flavour. On the nose vanila and floral,on the palate lingering oils with a rumbustious rum finish...gorgeous. My favourite whisky is Ardbeg,this is my 2nd favourite. Just get some

Here in British Columbia... bought a bottle and was pleasantly surprised! Love Irish whiskey and have a new favorite!

My grandmother was a Teeling!! I am looking forward to a wee dram soon.
Tried this at City Airport... beautifully smooth and a long finish from the rum barrel. Can't wait to get over to Dublin to drink it at the distillery!

We share the Teeling name and can't wait to taste Teeling Whiskey here in the states. Hope it's coming soon.

Santa was good and got a bottle of this. Disappeared too quickly and couldn't believe the ladies really got stuck into it.
1st January 2014
I wouldn't fancy your chances with a cask strength dram then!
4th December 2013
Completely taken aback by this Whiskey, so smooth and easy to drink and for the price is best in show

Very nice whiskey that does taste typically irish.
The rum finish is a nice bonus. @ £30-ish per bottle its a value for money whiskey,
however @ a higher price I would not buy it.
22nd August 2013
This is a superb new whiskey that has character that suits the modern age and at 46 per cent should have a dash of your favourite mineral water to suit your taste. No more Mr Macho. Enjoy!

Was suprised that this was a blend. Malty mouth feel. Starts with cream, then sweet blood orange. Vanilla custard and tropical fruits dominate. The maturation in Flor de Cana barrels, give it that spiciness one would expect from the Nicuaraguan rum style. Great bang for your buck whiskey. Fantastic addition to the growing Irish whiskey,s in the world.
For a blend 10/10.
I dont understand why the person just before me tastes something harsh. In my case its so easy drinking. Noharshness at all
31st July 2013
A nice enough wiskey with interesting tastes from being matured in a rum cask however I guess due to its 46% strength it has a fairly harsh taste which unfortunately masks a lot of the subtle taste for me and the others I do advise having a try though since it does have a unique taste
21st June 2013
I didn't think Irish whiskey could be this complex...rum cask finish and non chill filtered@46%.. thank god for online retailers for further due diligence!!
20th June 2013
Good and interesting dram - like the rum influence.
14th June 2013
Love the sweet and smooth taste of Irish and this is just more of what I like. Great mouth feel probably from not being chill filtered with extra molasses sweetness from the rum makes this dangerously drinkable especially when you consider it is 46%. Definitely worth checking out.

Teeling out does itself ! the hint of vanilla is the first taste as i had my drink at the Palace Bar in Dublin. The smooth finish is fantastic. Creamy. but it is whiskey and a really good one .
