Teeling Spirit Of Dublin Poitín
This is a unique Irish spirit that was distilled in Dublin city, in the Teeling Distillery. It is a triple distilled blend of malted and unmalted barley. It is referred to as a spirit, new make, because it has not been aged in wood for three years. In Ireland it is legally required to be aged in wood for three years in order to be considered a whiskey.
On the nose there is a glorious sweet almond note along with lemongrass, cooked barley, honey and freshly baked bread. Flickers of green apple and throw a lively kick into the nose.
The palate is surprisingly smooth with the cereal notes popping on the palate. The lemongrass and almond notes are a different yet fresh and give the palate a nice tickle. An element of spice does bring about the full beauty of this Poitín.
This is quite a vibrant Poitín, with an unmistakeable soft and delicate palate. Make sure to try it in October on one of many trails around Dublin’s fair city.
