Teeling Whiskey 30 Year Old Vintage Reserve Single Malt

Price: €1,500 (US$1,740)

In the most expensive single malt flight, ultra premium, Teeling Whiskey 30 Year Old Vintage Reserve Single Malt nabbed a Master medal.

The expression was also given the top accolade of Taste Master, following a retaste of all of the Master-winning expressions during the competition.

The panel delighted in the expression’s “peach nose”, which led to a “creamy, spicy” palate.

Launched in October last year, the 30-year-old Teeling single malt was distilled in 1987 and initially matured in ex-Bourbon casks for 25 years, before being aged for an additional five years in ex-white Burgundy French oak casks.
