Depending on how old you are, 33 years may strike you as ancient or infantile. For a single-malt Irish whiskey, though, it’s an enviable number to savor: Distilled in 1983, Teeling’s Vintage Reserve edition is believed to be one of the longest-aged single malts ever produced. Only 275 bottles were yielded after the batch aged in two ex-bourbon barrels, each containing layers of flavor like the rings of a mighty tree—certainly not overly oaky, mind you. Maker Teeling Whiskey Distillery‘s tale is equally complex, beginning in 1782 and continuing with a recent reincarnation that is the Teeling of today. Discover more details about the distillery when you purchase this very special Vintage Reserve single malt: Each bottle comes with a complimentary commemorative historical booklet made by one of the oldest bookbinders in Ireland.
