Product of: Ireland (Eire)
The first of the old Irish whiskey brands to be reformulated as a blend, Tullamore D.E.W. remains one of the lightest of Irish whiskies. Blended from 3 types of whiskey - pot still, malt and grain whiskies. It is predominantly matured in ex-bourbon casks with only a small sherry wood contribution. Read more
Sampled on 01/09/2012
Clear, coppery amber with gold highlights. (Pre-2012 samples without the initials are pale straw yellow.)
Fruity cereal grainy nose which starts reminiscent of All-Bran breakfast cereal but opens to reveal pear fruit with honey and faint cacao. (Pre-2012 samples have a metallic grapey nose with floral aromas.)
Creamy sweet barley malt and caramel with hints of pear skin and pear fruit with subtle cinnamon spice. (Heavier and rounder than its former self).
Cereal finish with lingering mild cinnamon and black pepper spice. Much rounder and altogether more flavoursome than previously.
Closure: Screw / Stelvin cap
