The Teeling Brabazon series, as we talked about earlier this year, was designed to give this Irish distillery a playground in which to explore how fortified wines can have an influence on Irish whiskey. The first offering from this line looked at sherry, and now word is the second bottling set to be released focuses upon port.

The new Brabazon Bottling Series 2, according to those behind it, pulls from a complementary range of vintages, sizes and styles of port cask matured and finished single malt whiskey for the final bottling. It is bottled at 49.5% ABV and is non-chill filtered to allow more of its natural color to shine through.

Plans call for this Irish whiskey, limited to 12,500 bottles, to be available at Teeling as well as retailers in Ireland and other select international markets for around €80, or about $95 USD. There was no immediate mention of official tasting notes for this release.

Brabazon Bottling Series 2

“Our aim with our Brabazon Bottling Series is to create full bodied tasting experiences for people who enjoy the added complexity and taste that fortified wine maturation imparts,” said Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey, in a prepared statement. “At the same time, our new bottling continues our goal to expand the spectrum of flavours available from premium Irish whiskeys. The response to our first release exceeded our expectations so we are very excited to see the reaction to our Series 2 Port Cask Bottling.”
