The 12 Drinks of Christmas, Day 10: Celebrate the New Year with Teeling Irish Whiskey Sips!

Teeling is one of these surprise brands that will knock you off your feet when you realize how darn good this brand is. I found out how unique Teeling was when I interviewed Stephen Teeling at The Federal in Long Beach. Not only did I get the history of the brand, I got a tasting session that blew me away. Each presentation of Teeling Irish Whiskey is better than the last from Small Batch to Single Grain to Single Malt.. each had their own unique spin on Irish Whiskey. All I can say is that each is amazing and worth the effort to find it and buy it!
