The Teeling family were of course the good folk behind the independent Cooley distillery (creating the excellent Connemara Peated single malt and Greenore single grain, for example) before it was eventually bought by Beam. Fortunately, they weren’t away for long and soon released Teeling Small Batch, a blend of selected casks of Irish malt and grain, finished for six months in ex-Flor de Caña Rum casks! In early 2015 they’ll have a shiny new distillery opening in the heart of Dublin too, one of many new projects on the island.
There’s really never been a better time for you all to get into Irish whiskey. (I mean, I remember the 19th century, but for the rest of you…) Perhaps I’ll dig out my green outfit for today. I’m sure it’s around here somewhere…
