Words of Whisky (88)

Nose: intensely fruity, with a lot of apple compote and pear drops, as well as apple cider. Raisins and a hint of marshmallow. Hints of tarte tatin and buttery apple cake. Then hints of honey, sugar cane sweetness, marzipan and vanilla. Quite a rich nose with a nice dessert-y sweetness.

Mouth: still sweet and fruity, with a light tropical hint. Ripe bananas and hints of mango, mixing with more of the expected stewed apples and pears. Mid-palate there’s a hint of passion fruit. Then it develops a light grassy touch, with some mineral notes and white pepper, toning down the fruits.

Finish: medium, with the grassy and peppery notes taking over and pushing the sweetness aside. A lot of apple peelings now.

Nice to see the tropical fruits. However they are pushed aside a little by abundant apple flavours, as well as a grassy / mineral edge that makes it sharper in the end. Overall quite a rewarding dram. Still available in a few places.

Teeling is releasing a final bottling in its Renaissance series. It is an 18 year old single malt initially matured in ex-bourbon casks for over 12 years, and then transferred to Calvados casks for over 6 years.
