Teeling Releases Fourth Bottling in Brabazon Single Malt Series
Continuing upon Teeling Whiskey’s dedication to creating new and interesting expressions of Irish whiskey, the Brabazon Bottling Single Malt Series focuses on creating a full flavoured taste experience that pays homage to the unique and distinct role that fortified wines can have on Irish whiskey.
For the fourth bottling in the series, unique barrels used by a historical style of Portuguese Port; Carcavelos, have been sourced to produce a unique and distinctive bottling of Teeling Whiskey.
Dating back to the 18th century, Carcavelos is a style of Portuguese fortified wine produced historically just outside of Lisbon. Only 25 acres remain today, with Carcavelos now produced on a very small artisanal scale.
These Carcavelos barrels were filled with Teeling Whiskey Single Malt which was distilled in 2007 and left for over two years to impart the full range of flavour and character on the whiskey.
The result is a unique 13-year-old single malt whiskey with notes of soft citrus fruits and distinctive, effervesce style spice.
Commenting on the new release, Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey, said: “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. We now complete the Series with our final bottling, this time using barrels previously used for a rare White Port, which produces a very unique expression of Teeling and Irish whiskey. This is a fitting end to our award winning Series which celebrates the combination of old and new as well as highlighting our unique approach to making Irish Whiskey and our spirit of innovation.”
Limited to 10,000 bottles and bottled at 49.5%, Teeling Whiskey’s Brabazon Bottling, Series 4 is currently available in Ireland and is now being rolled out to Teeling Whiskey partners in Benelux, France, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, Australia and select Asian markets in due course.
