The Dublin based Teeling Whiskey, has announced the launch of a new single grain expression.
Teeling 15 Year Old Single Grain (50% ABV) which was produced using a mashbill of 95% corn and 5% malted barley, was initially matured in ex-Bourbon barrels, before undergoing a secondary period of maturation in ex-Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc casks.

This latest release which follows on from their multi-award winning core offering which was first released in 2013, is said to deliver note of grapefruit, green apple and honeysuckle on the nose, followed by notes of fresh and zesty peppers, honeydew melon, vanilla and pear on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Jack Teeling, Founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, said: “It’s a little known fact that the majority of Irish whiskey sold is actually grain whiskey as it makes up the majority of the composition in big multinational owned brands of Irish whiskey. As such, since our formation we have been keen to ensure we offered unique and interesting expressions of Teeling Single Grain Whiskey. Our new 15-Year-Old release is a further representation of our mission to help drive the continued expansion of the Irish whiskey category through unique bottlings and expressions.”
Teeling 15 Year Old Single Grain, will initially be available later this month from specialist retailers in Ireland, before rolling out to international markets, for a RRP of €110.00.
