Tullamore D.E.W. is a triple distilled blended Irish whiskey, aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and sherry casks. The early floral and biscuit notes reflect the grain whiskey, while the soft spicy notes can be attributed to the pot still whiskey in the blend. The sherry and bourbon casks used in maturation impart nutty, vanilla, marzipan characters.
Appearance: Golden lemon.
Nose: Citrus and green apple with vanilla undertones.
Taste: Honey and pear followed by toasted cereal notes.
Finish: Creamy vanillas with hints of cassis and oak.
Overall: Exceptionally smooth, mellow whiskey.

Irish whiskey was once the most popular spirit in the world and has been massively on the rise in popularity in recent years. Ireland and Scotland both lay claim to being whisky’s original creator but it’s likely both nations developed a similar product at around the same time. The knowledge of distillation is commonly thought to have been brought to Ireland (and Scotland) by monks returning from the Mediterranean and the Middle East in around 1000AD.
