Released to celebrate the Renaissance of Irish whiskey, this is a joyous limited release from Teeling. Renaissance Series 5 is made up of 18-year-old single malt that was matured in ex-bourbon barrels before being finished in ex-Calvados casks. Just 9,000 bottles were filled at 46% abv. It is free from chill filtration.
Aromas of menthol, cinnamon, and toffee apples rise to meet the nose. The palate brings jasmine, sultanas, and baked apples. The finish is rich with black cherries, golden syrup, and toasted oak.
