Greg Dillon Notes

Nose:

Lots of wood notes, quite peppery, exotic fruits such as pineapple and kiwi fruit, hints of coconut comes through
with time too. Quite sweet and mellow, a bit earthy in places.
 

Palate:

Sweet, punchy, juicy, absolutely fantastic palate; those
exotic fruits come to the fore brilliantly, with a rounded spiciness that wraps it all together to create a stunning whiskey. Seriously enjoyable stuff.

 

Finish:

Long finish, balanced between spice and sweetness, alternating seemingly with each sip and swallow, vibrant, alive.

 

Overall:

A really stunning whiskey, well played Team Teeling, I think this is my favourite from the four Revival releases.

  

Michael Foggarty Notes

Nose:

Extremely tropical. Mango, passion fruit and pineapples.
 

Palate:

The fruits deliver and come through along with lots of citrus, some spice and vanilla toward the end.

 

Finish:

Sweet with medium length.
 

Overall:

The whiskey is very fruity and I’m assuming that is coming from the Muscat which has left a mark here.
Another great release from Teeling.
