Episode four returned to regular presenter team Andy & Stu as they turned their attention to whisky with an ‘e’, sampling a celebrated single malt from Dublin’s own banks of the Liffey – Teeling Single Malt. Teeling Distillery is a relative newcomer to the Irish market, having been established in 2015 as the first new whiskey distillery in Dublin in 125 years.
Teeling Single Malt won Best Irish Single Malt (no age statement) at the World Whisky Awards 2016. The bottling is vatted from whiskey finished in a variety of casks (Sherry, Port, Madeira, White Burgundy, Cabernet Sauvignon), resulting in a dram that is rich and fruity but perhaps a little hard to pin down. It will be interesting to see what expressions Teeling produce as the distillery ages alongside its unique whiskey.
The playlist threw out music from as many different angles as the cask finishes making up the dram. Stu picked out fine examples of Irish indie, punk and electronica alongside Andy’s nods to blues, art-rock and Shane Magowan completed a mix satisfyingly paired to the Teeling Single Malt.
