Latest Teeling Revival Irish Whiskey Aged in Ex-Muscat Port Barrels

The Teeling Revival series, as we’ve explored multiple times during the range’s development, celebrates the opening of the Teeling distillery in 2015. Five Revival bottlings were planned, and now we are on number four – a rather unique Irish whiskey expression which saw finishing time in special dessert wine barrels.

Teeling The Revival Volume IV, according to those behind it, is a sourced 15-year-old Irish single malt which was initially aged in ex-bourbon barrels. It was then moved into ex-muscat port barrels for a period of a year for further maturation before being bottled at 46% ABV.

“We are delighted to launch our latest release in the award winning Revival range, just 8 months out from having Irish whiskey come of age from our Newmarket distillery,” said Jack Teeling, founder and managing director of Teeling Whiskey, in a prepared statement. “Consisting of 15-Year-Old Single Malt finished in high quality Muscat Port casks, it is destined to be a classic and sought after release as it has already been crowned Irish Whiskey of the Year at the recent Irish Whiskey Awards as well as receiving a Liquid Gold Award and a 95 point rating in the 2018 Jim Murray Whisky Bible.”

Plans call for 10,000 bottles of this whiskey to be made available at €120, or about $145 USD. Limited official tasting notes suggest “a unique palette pleasing taste profile; ripe fruits and rich spices intermingle with creamy vanilla to give a wonderfully dry, woody finish. A signature aroma of ripe peach, pineapple and satsuma mandarin tops off the dry dark chocolate undertones.”
