This latest release from the Dublin based distillery, follows on from their first Wonders of Wood release, which was finished in virgin Brazilian Amburana casks.

The selection of the Cherry Wood Cask as the second release on the Teeling Wonders of Wood series, was decided by attendees of their virtual Wonders of Wood event in September. Hosted by Teeling Whiskey’s Master Distiller Alex Chasko, Teeling Maturation Manager Iain Wood and Global Brand Ambassador Robert Caldwell.

Teeling Wonders of Wood Cherry Wood Cask, is said to deliver notes of wood spice, brown sugar and dried fruits on the nose, followed by notes of sawdust, sandalwood, rosewater and Turkish delight on the palate.

Commenting on the news, Iain Wood, Teeling’s Maturation Manager, said: “This is an exciting innovation that commercialises whiskey finished in unusual wood types. Irish Whiskey regulations don’t limit the wood type used in maturation to oak, therefore there is a lot of other wood types to explore, particularly in terms of the different and unique flavour profile they can impart to the whiskey.”

He went onto say: “We have trialled many non-oak wood types with varying degrees of success, however this is good because we often learn more when we get it wrong! As long as we continue to learn and be at the forefront of whiskey innovation, I’m happy.”

Teeling Wonders of Wood Cherry Wood Cask, is now available directly from Teeling Distillery’s online store, for a RRP of €125.00.
