As part of Teeling’s Sommelier Selection we have the Amarone cask finish. This is the second such expression to come from Teeling, but the first that has been distilled at Newmarket distillery, not Cooley. (Although it’s possible this may be a blend from the two). A non-age-statement blend, this whiskey has been finished for at least 16 months, so expect heavy influence from the sweet Amerone casks. Produced in Veneto, northern Italy, a wine producing region hailed as one of the most important in the state. Protected by European law, strict processes and local traditions are followed when producing Amerone wines. Only the ripest grapes are harvested in the beginning of October. Once picked, they go through a process known locally as appassimento, a extra process of drying the grapes to raisins. This concentrates the sugar in the grape, and once pressed, results in a rich treacle like wine. After a lengthy fermentation of between 1 and 2 months, the wine is then aged for a period of at least 2 years by law, with many producers opting for at least 5 years. Slovenian oak is the wood of choice the barrels. Slovenian oak possesses a finer grain compared to typical European oak, which suits the longer ageing periods Amerone wines demand.

This Jameson 15 Year Old Very Special Old Whiskey is indeed a special bottle that was produced at the Bow Street distillery in the 1970s. It was aged for 15 years and is incredibly hard to come by today. A real piece of Irish history.
This Wicklow Rare blend is a mix of 80% grain whiskey and 20% 10 Year Old malt whiskey. It was matured in ex-bourbon casks for most of its life before being finished in Oloroso Sherry butts. A really lovely whiskey that comes in an elegant bottle.
