Tullamore Dew 12 Year Old Special Reserve

Tullamore Dew 12 Year Special Reserve

 

 

Tullamore Dew 12 Year Old Special Reserve is one of Ireland's smoothest whiskeys and one I would always recommend to anyone who is new to whiskey.

 

It is triple distilled and matured for 12-15 years in ex bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks.  Like the regular Tullamore Dew, it is a blend of Irish pot still, malt and grain whiskeys, one of only two whiskey brands in the world to be blended in such a way.

 

It is a very approachable whiskey with a harmonious and complex range of aromas and flavours.  It can be enjoyed either as a classic aperitif or as an after dinner whiskey - add a little water or ice if you wish as an aperitif, or drink neat as a digestif. 

 

Its gentle palette of flavours means that it marries well with a wide range of different foods.

Tasting Notes

NOSE - Malt, cinnamon, toasted wood and vanilla notes.  Faint notes of Christmas cake and a hint of lemon.
 
TASTE - Very Smooth anf full with a touch of oak, followed by sweet Oloroso nuttiness with just a touch of spice.
 
 FINISH - Rich, long, malty and spicy notes. Pleasantly dry finish.
