The Irish Teeling Distillery was opened in Dublin in 1782. In 2015, the distillery was renovated and opened its doors just a few meters from the original location, on Newmarket Square in the Liberties district. The distillery has become a real tourist magnet in recent years, which is probably due to the fact that visitors get excellent insights into the production process. The Teeling Whiskey Sommelier Selection DOURO OLD VINES Casks belongs to the Sommelier Selection Small Batch series of Teeling. This series is responsible for the unique character of different wine regions. For the production, barrels of high-quality wineries are used. This bottling is made from wines from the Douro Valley in Portugal. Maturation takes place in bourbon casks and then the whiskey receives its finish for 14 months in former Portuguese red wine casks from the Douro Valley. The bottling is done without chill filtration. Tasting notes:Color: Copper red. Nose: Intense, black fruit, sweet spices, wood. Taste: Balanced, notes of tannins, spices, black fruit.
