This bottling was hand selected by members of The Aviators Whiskey Society at a tasting event held at the Teeling Distillery and hosted by Jack Teeling. Members were treated to an array of 4 single cask samples that were all reviewed in a blind taste test.
By the end of the evening the 50+ members had declared the Cabernet Sauvignon Finished Single Cask the single malt of choice. Bottled at cask strength, this 12 year old single malt was originally matured in ex-bourbon casks before being finished in ex-Californian cabernet sauvignon casks, imparting a wonderfully well balanced, silky stone fruit finish, unique to Irish whiskey.
Stephen Teeling, Sales & Marketing Director of the Teeling Whiskey Company, said, “from its robust fruity nose to its layered flavour profile The Aviators Single Cask bottling is a celebration of everything good about Irish whiskey.”
John Byrne, Buyer ARI Ireland for Alcohol & Tobacco, said “The Aviators Whiskey Society was set up by retail staff in Dublin Airport to celebrate, promote and above all, enjoy Whiskey! They’ve now taken it one step further by creating their own whiskey.
“This premium whiskey which will sit proudly on shelf alongside an already diverse and truly market leading collection. I can’t think of anything better to express the real “spirit” of the Aviator’s Society. Who says you can’t bottle positivity!”.
