For Series 4, we have sourced unique barrels used by a long forgotten historical style of Portuguese Port, to produce a truly unique and distinctive bottling of Teeling Whiskey. Carcavelos is a style of Portuguese fortified wine dating back to the 18th century. Produced historically just outside of Lisbon, its wineries have mainly disappeared over the years. Now only 25 acres remain with Carcavelos produced on a very small artisanal scale, so we were very lucky to get our hands on some barrels used in its production.
These rare Port barrels were filled with our Single Malt which was distilled in 2007 and left for over two years to impart the full range of flavour and character on the whiskey. The result is truly a unique 13 Year Old Single Malt whiskey bursting with soft citrus fruits and distinctive, effervesce style spice. Limited to 10,000 bottles and bottled at 49.5% this is truly an Irish whiskey to savour.
