Teeling 21 Vintage Reserve – Silver Bottling & Teeling 26 1987 Gold Reserve

Thanks to /u/boyd86 for the sample of Teeling 21. Teeling was established recently. Very recently. And is currently running their three stills quite hard, using innovative casks, and overall being impressive. However, the question most usually have is this: “How in the heck do they have older releases?” They source their whisky. That’s really the only answer. From where? No official statement.
