Teeling Brabazon Series 1 Single Malt Irish Whiskey
The Teeling Brabazon, is the lasted Single Malt to come out of the Teeling Distillery. It is the first of a series. The whiskey has come from a range of barrels matured to different ages, the youngest coming from 2008 and the oldest from 2002. The majority of the whiskey has been matured in ex-Sherry casks with a small amount being matured in PX or Oloroso sherry casks. This Batch No.1 has a limited amount of 12,500 bottles and is bottled at 49.5% ABV. The name Brabazon comes from Lord Brabazon the 3rd Earl of Meath who was responsible for the development of Newmarket Square, where the Teeling Whiskey Distillery is suited in the Liberties.
On the nose the Teeling Brabazon, has aromas of dried fruits, citrus, walnuts and a hint of prunes. On the palate there is a initial sense of cured ham and leather. As the whiskey flows around your mouth more flavours of dates, orange peel, cinnamon and ginger come through. The finish is that of spice and fruity notes.
