Earlier this year we did a Virtual Tasting event where we allowed people to taste some of our more unusual Wonders of Wood casks. At the end of the tasting we got them to vote which was their favourite and share their tasting notes. The winner on the night was to be bottled up as a Single Cask.

The very first in our series of Wonder of Wood bottlings. A 14 year old single malt aged initially in bourbon barrels and then in virgin Amburana Brazilian hardwood. Challenging the conception of traditional whiskey flavours, this unique Irish whiskey has a striking carrot cake flavour to it with hints of vanilla, cardamom and walnut. A Teeling Whiskey Distillery Exclusive bottled at 56.9% ABV.

“Like Christmas in a glass”

These casks normally never make it out of Brazil but we were lucky to get our hands on a bunch of sustainably farmed casks that had been destined for a premium Cachaça distiller. This is something very different than anything we have bottled before and has a striking carrot cake flavour with hints of cardamom and walnut. Definitely not Irish whiskey as you would normally know it.
