The unique dual maturation of the Teeling 24 Year Old, is said to impart an extra depth of fruit flavours, that complement the hint of smoke derived from the inclusion of a small portion of peated malt as part of the original ingredients used in production.

Believed to be one of the oldest Irish single malt whiskey’s to ever be released, the hand bottled Teeling 33 Year Old, is said to deliver a truly unique taste experience, from its complex floral nose, to its deep layered and luxurious palate.

Commenting on the launch, Jack Teeling, Founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, said: “We are extremely proud to be able to release some of the oldest ever bottlings of Irish Single Malt with our Vintage Reserve Collection. These offerings are central to our goal to help drive diversity in Irish whiskey by introducing interesting and unique small batch bottlings. There is nothing else like these Irish Single Malts on the market and represent a rare piece of Irish whiskey history in each bottle.”

Teeling 24 Year Old and Teeling 33 Year Old Vintage Collection bottlings, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for the respective RRP’s of €300 and €3,500.
