The Renaissance series celebrates the birth of Teeling and the rebirth, as the name suggests, of Irish whiskey, of which the distillery has been a mainstay since its inception six years ago.
All eighteen year old bottlings, obviously made from whiskey sourced externally from the Cooley distillery with which the Teeling family has a strong connection, in a limited edition of 9,000 bottles.
This is the first bottle, released in 2019, featuring a triple-distilled whiskey aged initially in ex-Bourbon casks before spending the final eighteen months in ex-Madeira wine casks, as always all natural.

Tasting notes

The nose presents a delicious trifle, accompanied by a slight alcoholic sting that tickles ripe peach, dried figs, almond, vanilla, candied orange and caramel. Very elegant and persuasive, also thanks to the wood spices that caresses the aromas. At length, cedar and tea leaves.
Soft and full on the palate too, the sweeter tones of the whiskey are lowered in favour of smoother flavours, where citrus notes (orange and cedar) grow together with liquorice root, tea leaves and wood, which embrace the fruity scents of the nose in a silky and balanced texture. Nuts and baked apple complete the picture, with a sprinkling of nutmeg and cinnamon.
Quite long and spicy finish of baked apple, tea leaves, candied orange, cinnamon.

An elegant, well-balanced whiskey that can extract the sweetest, most decadent components from Madeira wine without being overwhelmed, creating a sensual, multi-faceted dram. The renaissance of Irish whiskey can truly be said to start here.
