The Teeling Whiskey Company has released its exclusive Single Barrel Irish whiskey bottling program just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.
This series involves 12 individual casks of Irish Single Malt whiskey hand-bottled for American on- and off-premises accounts on both the east and west coasts.
The 2016 U.S. Single Barrel release consists of 13-Year-Old Single Malt Irish whiskey distilled in 2002, and initially matured in ex-bourbon barrels for the first 12 years, before being finished exclusively in ex-White Port barrels from the Carcavelos region of Portugal. This region is famous for its “light fragrant fruity flavor,” the distillery says.
The Teeling Whiskey Company is the first whiskey producer to use this type of White Port barrel to age whiskey.
Each bottle of Single Malt is bottled at cask/barrel strength.
The exclusive Teeling Whiskey Single Barrel Series will retail for approximately $85 per 750-ml. bottle and will be available on shelves in selected spirits’ retailers in time for St. Patrick’s Day, March 17.
