Teeling launch 14-year-old Single Malt finished in Amburana cask as the first in a new series ‘Wonders of Wood’
Teeling have announced the very first in their new series of Wonders of Wood bottlings. A 14 Year Old Single Malt aged initially in bourbon barrels and then further matured in Virgin Amburana Brazilian hardwood. Challenging the conception of traditional whiskey flavours, this unique Irish whiskey has a striking carrot cake taste profile with hints of vanilla, cardamom and walnut. This Teeling Distillery Exclusive is very different to anything they have bottled before and definitely not Irish whiskey as you would normally know it.
The selection of the Amburana Wood as the first release of their Wonders of Wood series was decided by attendees of our 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, the tasting gave participants a unique opportunity to taste some of their most innovative and unique Teeling Whiskey maturation projects.
At the end of the tasting they asked the audience to vote for their favourite and to share their tasting notes. The winner on the night was to be bottled up as a Single Cask and to be the first of their Wonders of Wood releases. The Amburana Brazilian hardwood was the pick of the lot! These casks normally never make it out of Brazil but Teeling were lucky to get their hands on a number of sustainably farmed casks that had been destined for a premium Cachaça distiller.
