Review - Tullamore D.E.W. 12 Year Old Special Reserve Whiskey


Rating 4.5 Glasses


Tasting Notes

  • Color & Consistency: Yellow amber and thicker legs than regular Tullamore D.E.W. Original that run the entire length of the glass. Think Beyoncé vs Taylor Swift.
  • Nose: Quite the hit of aromas in the forefront but like its younger brethren fades quickly, opening to a world of Irish delight (which is like Turkish delight but much more boozy) with sweet caramel happiness and more intense sherry notes.
  • Taste: Butterscotch, citrus, brown sugar & figs.
    • Finish: Lingers with malt and spice that hangs around.

Conclusion: BIG step up from Original D.E.W. A bit sweeter and more depth most likely due to the longer aging. Great value for the complexity of flavors and we would put it up against almost any other at this price point.
