Dublin’s first Single Pot Still Whiskey

It has been a long time coming. The evolution of Teeling Irish Whiskey is one we’ve watched since mid-2014, when they first debuted some older sourced whiskey expressions alongside the stated goal of bringing whiskey making back into the heart of Dublin, Ireland. This they accomplished in early 2015 when their first barrel of aging whiskey was laid down even as they shortly thereafter opened the doors to their new distillery to the public. And now, in a move which brings them full circle, Teeling Whiskey, well known for full bodied, fruity Irish whiskey has finally produced it’s first Single Pot Still Whiskey in its distillery in Dublin.

Now available.

MYTHS & LEGENDS – CB

I was sceptical when these released. Especially the price set me off at first. In November 2019 I tried these at Spirits in the Sky, Brussels, and I was really impressed. These are the FIRST Single Malts ever released by Compass Box and I must say they are worth trying.

Compass Box introduces the Myths & Legends trinity like this:

Scotch whisky has a rich array of stories, myths and legends. However, what start as myths can become received wisdom, influencing our understanding and restricting our enjoyment. We have deployed blending to challenge assumptions, biases and prejudices concerning Scotch in this limited edition series we call Myths & Legends.

CB M&L 3bottles

It may surprise some, but blending is as crucial to the creation of single malts as it is to blended whisky. Myths & Legends I highlights the extent to which individual casks are often unreliable authorities for the style of whisky made at a distillery; it is by blending casks together that a fuller picture of distillery character can emerge.
