Teeling Whiskey has released the latest in its limited edition Vintage Reserve Collection – the Teeling 32 Year-Old Irish Single Malt.
This is the second 32 year-old release in the series and is limited to 750 bottles, making it one of the world’s oldest bottlings of Irish single malt recently released.
Teeling 32 Year-Old Single Malt was distilled in 1989 and initially matured in ex-rum casks before being given extra maturation in high quality Pedro Ximenez barrels from a small family run bodega in Jerez, Spain.
This follows on from an earlier release of a similarly aged limited edition 32 year-old single malt which was fully matured solely in ex-rum barrels.
For this release, the dual cask maturation imparts a rich depth of flavour, including dark chocolate and dry fruit with hints of burnt sugar and roasted nuts.
This limited edition release of st 750 70cl bottles was hand bottled in unique decanter bottles and comes in a high-end wooden gift box with its own certificate of authenticity.
Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, commented: “We are extremely proud to be custodians of some of the oldest Irish single malt in the world and we have been mindfully releasing these periodically over the last few years as our Vintage Reserve Collection. These offerings are central to our goal to drive the range of unique offerings within the super premium Irish whiskey category and in particular, Irish single malts through limited release, once off bottlings. There is nothing else like these Irish single malts on the market and they represent a rare piece of Irish whiskey history in each bottle.”
The Teeling 32 Year-Old Single Malt will be available initially in the Teeling Whiskey Distillery, Celtic Whiskey Shop and select Irish retailers at a RRP of €2,000 per 70cl, before being rolled out to a range of international markets across Asia and Europe in due course.
