The day after St Paddy’s Day is the perfect time to drop these little Scottish/Irish gems. Innis & Gunn Kith & Kin, the first Innis & Gunn to use (or reveal) the name brand whisky barrels used to age their beer. In this case, it’s Teeling whiskey, a great Irish distiller.
We’ve had a Teeling previously, so you can check out what we said of their whiskey here. It’s nice to see a collaboration between two good companies like this, here’s what we thought:
Dan – malty chocolate & green apples
Simon – chocolate, apple, caramel, malt
Davey – very dark, rich, crisp stout
Dan – light with coffee & sweet cola
Simon – light caramel cocacola, thinner than expected & a little more refreshing
Davey – smooth Stout, light boozy warmth
Dan – short & mild
Simon – sweet but clean
Davey – slight bitter
Dan – 8.0/10
Simon – 7.8/10
Davey – 7.75/10
Innis & Gunn Kith & Kin Teeling Whiskey-Aged Stout – 5.8% 330ml – $5.00 – Scotland/Ireland
Try it? Yes. Buy it? Yes.
