For the 13-year-old Series 4 single malt, Teeling sourced rare Carcavelos port barrels. Carcavelos is a style of Portuguese fortified wine that dates back to the 18th century and is produced on a small, artisanal scale today. The barrels were filled with a Teeling single malt which was distilled in 2007 and left for over two years. The resulting whiskey has soft citrus fruit notes and distinctive spices.
Limited to 10,000 bottles and bottled at 49.5% Brabazon Bottling, Series 4 is €95 and is available now. For more go to teelingwhiskey.com
