Teeling Whiskey has sent me a sample of their newly released The Revival Volume II .
This second bottling of “The Revival”, a limited edition Single Malt has been produced to mark the one year anniversary of its new distillery, the first in Dublin for over 125 years.
The Revival Volume II bottling consists of 13 Year Old Single Malt Irish whiskey distilled in 2002 and matured initially in ex-Bourbon casks. By finishing in 250 litre ex-Calvados French apple brandy casks an extra apple and pear character unique to Irish whiskey is imparted. Further by bottling at 46% ABV with no chill filtration completes an Irish whiskey of true character.
The one year anniversary of our new distillery is a major milestone in the history of Teeling Whiskey. Due to the overwhelming response to our first Revival release to mark our opening we decided to release a second celebratory bottling — The Revival Vol II.
We have again selected a very special whiskey to celebrate the Revival of distilling in Dublin with the first ever Calvados aged Irish whiskey. Our second bottling will be limited to only 10,000 bottles and sold both through our distillery as well as our domestic and international distributors.

The Revival Vol II 13 Year Old will retail for approximately £85.00.
So, what did I think? Here are my tasting notes …
Tasting Notes – Teeling Whiskey The Revival (46%)
Nose: Crisp green apples and tinned pears. Thick caramel infused with vanilla. Subtle aromas of wood.
Palate: Thick, pleasant mouthfeel. Rich fudge and caramel, apple and soaked christmas cake fruits.
Finish: Dry, spicy, peppery combined with sherbet sweetness that develops after a while. Fruity and pleasantly long.
Overall: A powerful alcohol hit to this dram but nicely tempered with peppery sweetness. Extremely enjoyable and all housed in the cutest whiskey miniature ever. A pleasure to add to my collection!
