Teeling are pleased to announce the release of the second in their series of Wonders of Wood bottlings. This release is a year older than the previous release boasting A 15 Year old age statement, Single Malt and aged initially in bourbon barrels and then in virgin Cherry Wood. Challenging the conception of traditional whiskey flavours, this unique Irish whiskey is full of floral notes, dried fruits and mellow spices. Following on from the Amburana Cask, the very first Wonders of Wood releases, this Teeling Distillery Exclusive is very different than anything we have bottled before and definitely not Irish whiskey as you would normally know it.

The selection of the Cherry Wood Cask as the second release of the Wonders of Wood series was decided by attendees of the Wonders of Wood event in September. Hosted by Teeling Whiskey’s Master Distiller, Alex Chasko, Teeling Maturation Manager, Iain Wood and Global Brand Ambassador, Robert Caldwell, the virtual tasting gave participants a unique opportunity to taste some of our most innovative and unique Teeling Whiskey maturation projects. At the end of the tasting they got the audience 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 and to be the first of the Wonders of Wood releases. The Amburana Brazilian Hardwood (first release) was the pick of the lot, however the Cherry Wood was such a close second place it had to be released too!
