The Teeling 37 Year Old Irish Single Malt Whiskey is officially available. The new, limited edition expression is now the oldest Whiskey in the Dublin-based distillery’s Vintage Reserve Collection.
Distilled back in 1983, the new release matured solely in an ex-Bourbon cask for 37 years. Hand-bottled at 41.3% ABV, it comes in at a price of €7,000 ($8,290 USD) per 700ml bottle.
Only 175 bottles of the Teeling 37 Year Old Irish Single Malt have been created, following previous releases of 30 Year Old and 33 Year Old expressions as part of the Vintage Reserve Collection.
At the moment, the Whiskey can only be purchased from the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in Dublin, Ireland. However, availability will soon be expanded to select partners and retailers across the globe.
Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, said: “We are extremely proud and lucky to be able to release some of the oldest ever bottlings of Irish single malt with our Vintage Reserve Collection.
“This very limited release of 37 Year Old Irish single malt is truly a piece of Irish whiskey history and amazingly for a whiskey of this age it is not over oaked but has a beautiful balanced taste profile.
“There is nothing else like these Irish single malts on the market and each one represents a rare piece of Irish whiskey history in each bottle.”
Earlier this year, Teeling launched two limited edition expressions to celebrate World Whiskey Day: Teeling Brabazon Series 3 – 14 Year Old Px Sherry Finished and Teeling 28 Year Old Vintage Reserve Single Malt. Both bottlings were very limited editions with the Brabazon Series 3 retailing €95 ($112 USD) and the 28 Year Old retailing for €500 ($590 USD) both per 70cl.
