Teeling Single Grain Bottling Note

Irish single grain whiskey from Teeling! There are only an elite few Irish single grain whiskies out there at the moment, but Teeling went ahead and made theirs unique by maturing it in Californian Cabernet Sauvignon casks. Deliciously sweet with a good deal of spice and fruit hide within the Teeling Single Grain.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Honeyed apple flesh and red grape, sweet and slightly floral with fragrant vanilla and spice, evaporated milk and brown sugar.

Palate: There's treacle on the palate, but it's light and buttery with dried cranberry developing.

Finish: Into golden syrup tart and sweet egg custard now with spicy cereal.

Overall: This is a thoroughly enjoyable grain whiskey, sweet and fairly light but full of flavour.

Teeling Single Grain Reviews

Vast improvement

Rich and flavourful, cream, vanilla, shortbread, spice. Massive improvement on the last time I bought it the harsh ethanol note in the mid palate has gone.

The wine cask finish ruined it for me

I like Teeling small batch so I figured this should be worth picking up. Immediately upon smelling this I knew I made a mistake. There's some nice vanilla, honey and biscuit notes hiding behind the strongest, sharpest chemical smell I've ever smelled in a whiskey.My guess would be that it's from the wine cask. It's so overpowering this is basically undrinkable for me. Sorry Teeling I love you but this was a fail try it without the wine cask next time and it would be so much better. The Sugarbear

My wife fell in love with this Irish Whiskey, and it's an understatement when I say that she doesn't love too many whiskies. This is our new go-to!

Very different - you will either love or hate it!

This one I did NOT like.
Way too much going on with conflicting flavours and I found it sickening and hard drinking
Saying that its a good quality whiskey and a good option if you want a smooth whiskey with lots of complex flavours

Smooth and surprisingly rich

Smooth and rich

Unique sweetness.

Sour, salty buttery caramel nose. Smells a bit shallow. Looks shallow. Then you taste it. Boozy werthers. Fantastic. Very smooth and a bit sweet. Actually surprisingly smooth with a booze hit mid way, then disappearing. Got it $15 off to boot eh. Not worth the price point imo, even with the discount, but opinions are like a*sholes. Still worth a try - it is unique.

Award winning is a given!

I just bought a one liter bottle of Teeling Single grain. I am very sorry that I did. I should have bought a whole case. This is excellent in many ways - aroma, taste and smooth.

20th August 2019

smooth and rich

A wonderful whiskey. Rich and deep in flavour - as close to a bourbon as you'll get from a whiskey.

17th June 2019

Very good for those that like a less harsh tasting whiskey.

Not normally a whiskey drinker or even a liquor drinker for that matter. Tried this as an after dinner sipping drink neat and thoroughly enjoyed flavors and sweetness.

19th May 2019

Best or there

Absolutely love this whiskey. So smooth and fabulous taste! I prefer it to the single malt - which surprised me.

27th April 2019

Best I’ve had!!

Pleasant aroma and great taste. Wish it was available in Pennsylvania.

19th March 2019

Really good water of life.

Delightful. Rich flavors, aggressive enough, definitely Irish - what’s not to like? 2 inches, 2 rocks, let’s get to know each other.

Great with ice!

As an Australian on a 40 (Celsius) plus degree day I love to have a whisk(e)y with ice. However I am often wracked with guilt with putting ice in a fine single malt. Enter Teeling Single Grain, This whiskey however actually improves with ice. Ice removes the nasty alcoholic note in the mid palate while the strong citirus caramel woody/vanilla still shine through and as the ice starts to melt new flavours come to the surface as others disappear like grape and fresh fruit notes or later on caramel notes. Just finish before too much water has rendered it watery and unpleasant.

This is just my personal view but this is fantastic for ice on a hot day

Great whiskey. Loved it. Recommend.

Great whiskey. Loved it. Recommend.

18th November 2018

Not good.

A very rough whiskey, so be prepared with the water so that you can taste other things than alcohol. I see from the other reviews that some thinks this is smooth, I wonder what they drink on a daily basis, maybe rubbing alcohol?

31st October 2018

Worth 3x the price

Heavenly different!

12th October 2018

Smoother than....

The smoothness and taste are absolutely faultless! With a little bit more character on the nose it would've been a 5. Sampled this with my best mate, who's from Cork, and he was well impressed. Looking forward to trying Teeling's other offerings in this resurgence of Irish Whiskey!

15th April 2018

Very Smooth -- My Current Favorite Irish!

Surprisingly smooth whiskey! A great find -- I find it even more satisfying than the single-malt!

5th March 2018

Absolute cracker, one of a kind!

95% of corn in mashbill yet it desnt taste like bourbon at all. I did tasting today side by side with Small Batch and Single Malt amd to me this one is the best out of Trinity series.
Very smooth and buttery. Great neat with small drop of water and it is bottled at 46% and NCF. Mega!

29th December 2017

Rewarding. Creamy and friendly.

Amazing whiskey. I think it is really interesting and refreshing change from Single Malt trend. Well balanced and inviting. Creamy/buttery on the pallet. 46% ABV as well.
In my humble opinion the best Irish whiskey in this price range.

21st December 2017


The nose - A sweet perfumed nose with a fruity undertone.

The taste, waxy smooth, sweet honey, lush grapes, pepper and wood after notes. A good lasting length into a dry pepper.
With water, a butter caramel nose. Taste - smooth butterscotch sugar heaven!
I'm buying a bottle this is superb

27th September 2017

Get some!

I was sold on the 'oily mouth feel'. I know it's weird, but I'm into that.
This bottle doesn't disappoint... it's oily and proper tasty.

1st September 2017

Cannot recommend enough.

Only recently turned on to this one after a recent trip to Belfast. Recommended by a very knowledgable barman and boy was he right. I genuinely believe it's the best Irish for the price bracket out there. Very easy to drink, so be warned, you can easily find yourself half a bottle in before you know it. The wine cask finish really shows, adding a pleasant but not overpowering fruitiness. Teeling delivers once again with bells and whistles. Drink straight.

18th July 2017

A light malt but slightly sour finish

Love Teeling whiskeys. But I find this expression a little sour on the finish, I think its the lying in the wine casks. Might be my taste buds! Their Small Batch is a wonderful dram at a quite reasonable price, the 13Y/O with the calvados finish a drink for the gods.

6th May 2017

Not for me but

you may like. Too raw taste for me who like more Scotch single malt (18-40 year old). However, you find special palette of this whisky.

22nd April 2017


I have reviewed Teeling Single Grain before,but having just bought another bottle I felt it necessary to repeat the fact that this is a lovely whiskey,and the best single grain I have tried.

7th February 2017

Just one of the best

Got a bottle from a friend and WOW its just so nice

18th December 2016

An unexpected surprise!

I tasted this at the Teeling distillery in Dublin alongside the Single Malt and the Small Batch, and this was my favourite. I'm a fan of American grain whiskeys for their character, but really wasn't expecting this Irish interpretation to be so complex. All three were very good, but maybe the element of surprise made this my favourite. It's just a little bit lighter than other grain whiskeys, and made it borderline refreshing!

Melvyn Holmes

This whiskey is a real treat, and excellent value.
It is smooth and full of flavour, only surpassed by the Teelings 15 year old.

9th October 2016


Fresh and fruity with an enjoyable finish.This is something special.

9th September 2016

Excellent bourbon

Had the pleasure of enjoying a dram of this following a tour of the Teeling distillery in Dublin last week; it is a very fine bourbon-style whiskey. It has the roundness of a good Irish Whiskey with the sweetness of a good American Bourbon.

20th June 2016


Enjoying it neat on a hot asian summer. Fruity, light and a tad dry.

7th May 2016


Unique. Belter of a whiskey.

Tasted first time in Shelbourne pub in Cork. I stumbled (!) on it during a break from playing trumpet at the recent Jazz Festival.
Bought 2 bottles to bring home to Yorkshire!
The taste & warmth are fantastic.

Mike Redman.

One of the finest Whiskeys I have ever had.

The Best

Gave a sample of this to a Scotch whisky lover. He reckoned it's the whisky of the year so far. I sincerely doubt you can buy a better whisky for the price. It's really drinkable & quite different from anything else.

4th May 2015


Recently tried two of your "dram" samples of this was excellent. Smooth with a bit of sweetness at the start and a delightfully smooth finish. This review is attached to my order for a bottle of this wonerful whiskey!!

9th April 2015


A real surprize package for a single grain . Comlexity and depth , the buttery sweetness at the start and the choclate / mint smooth finish . Tried it at a recent whisky tasting very impressed by it , brought a bottle for the collection .

4th April 2015

Very nice

Not many Irish grain whiskeys on the market definitely worth a this.teeling are makeing some very interesting whiskeys I'd recommend check out there range.

21st February 2015

Clean & Cool, Mint & Chocolate

Nose: chocolate Palette: cool mint, chocolateFinish: clean & cool, smooth || Great sipping drink for everyday drinkers for the price. Whereas many drinks are warm, this one is cool.

31st January 2015


Received this as a sample in a tasting set, and was wowed by the full flavor and complexities that can exist in smooth, buttery sweetness start to finish. I didn't have enough in the sample to find the dried cranberry on the palate, but perhaps I'll get myself a bottle and continue that journey. This gem is a 'must have' in my opinion!

15th December 2014

Oh man!

What a surprise! Very rich and complex, did not expect this at all considering it's a single grain. Lot's of flavour, spices and richness. Added as a favourite amongst other such as Aberfeldy 12 and Glenfiddich 12.

15th August 2014


i really like it

Breakfast Whiskey - Extraordinary

I had the pleasure of tasting this little beauty at a tasting with Stephen Teeling at the Soho Whisky Club before Christmas! I was blown away by the depth of the grain and flavour infused by the wine cask! Maize as a grain is the way forward! Loved his description of it as his 'Breakfast Whiskey'!!

15th January 2014

A great little grain

I was lucky enough to try this on a recent tasting. Considering grain whiskies generally lack the depth of flavour profile of malts, especially at the younger end of the scale, this whikey knocks that into a cocked hat. A great, fruit laden spicey dram from this 5yr old grain. Well done Stephen Teeling and the team and well worth the money. Very unique
