Following the success of Teeling Whiskey's Blackpitts, Teeling's first venture into Peated Single Malts, there is a new bolder variation on the horizon, Teeling Blackpitts Cask Strength!
Nicknamed the "Big Smoke", Teeling Whiskey welcomes a new member to their family, a Cask Strength Peated Single Malt. This expression is targeted towards those who are fans of Peated whiskeys. Blackpitts Cask Strength was created to give a full flavoured smoke experience and by using heavily Peated malt, double distilling, matured exclusively in ex-bourbon barrels and bottling it at 56.5%.
With a tongue in cheek nickname of the Big Smoke, (a slang name for Dublin, the Irish capital with allusion to smoke as characteristic of an urban area), the home of Teeling Whiskey Distillery, with the iconic Poolbeg chimneys which dominate the Dublin skyline. Where once they billowed smoke across Dublin, now replaced with Dublin Waste to Energy - (Covanta Incinerator Plant)...
“When we re-established Teeling Whiskey in 2012 our goal was to be the leader in driving the choice and expressions of Irish whiskey as well as to revive distilling in the city of Dublin. Our expanding range of Blackpitts bottlings truly embrace this vision. Through the use of heavily peated malted barley and distilling in such a way to ensure we retain as much of the smoke character as possible, we have crafted a very unique offering within the Teeling Whiskey family. Rooted in history but encapsulating a true modern approach, our new Blackpitts Cask Strength is truly unconventional Irish whiskey at its finest.”
