This new series from the Dublin based distillery, builds on its reputation for crafting unique and interesting expressions of Irish whiskey, by exploring the full spectrum of flavours it can offer, and pushes the boundaries by utilising unique styles of wood for the maturation of their award-winning single pot still whiskey.

Teeling Wonders of Wood - Virgin Chinkapin Oak Release, is said to deliver notes of sweet toffee, butterscotch, caramel biscuit and wood tannins on the nose, followed by notes of banana bread, ginger spice and cream soda on the palate.

Commenting on the news, Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey, said: “Wood is an amazing, sustainable and environmentally friendly material that plays a huge role in developing the flavour and character of a whiskey as it matures. We are truly in wonder of the role wood has in crafting our Teeling Whiskeys as well as its impact on the wider environment. As such, while it was important to ensure each release of our new WOW series lives up to our world-class reputation and to help us expand the growing premium Single Pot Still category of Irish whiskeys, we also wanted to ensure we gave something back to our local environment. As such we were delighted when the Tree Council of Ireland partnered with us to allow us to do our part in helping the replanting of our native Irish forests.”

Teeling Wonders of Wood - Virgin Chinkapin Oak Release, will initially be available later this month from specialist retailers in Ireland, before rolling out to international markets. RRP €80.00.
