TASTING NOTES TEELING SMALL BATCH RUM CASK FINISH
Nose: easy. It delivers a rather fruit sweetness (could be from rum, could be from distillate), apple juice, grain cereals, a touch of liquorice, and a little grass.
Taste: starts rather grassy with more fruit sweetness underneath, vanilla and plain sugar, some grain presence, oatmeal, quite a bit of oak dryness. Decent weight for Irish blend.
Finish: medium persistency. More grains, apple juice, more grass and dryness.
Overall, the Teeling Small Batch Rum Cask Finish is a decent quality whiskey. It can be considered an upgrade on the regular Jameson or Tullamore.
