Tullamore D.E.W. Special Reserve 12 Year Old is a carefully crafted blend of old Irish whiskeys. They say with age comes wisdom, or in this case, complexity, character and maturity – one of the reasons why this truly unique whiskey has been awarded plaudits in abundance from whiskey connoisseurs around the world.
Nose: Early spice followed by red wine while a nice nuttiness follows before a light woody note brought on from 12 years spent in oak casks.
Taste: A deep spice flavour with a robust yet creamy body cloaked in a definite chocolaty note. Dried fruits and nut accompany the chocolate, giving a verticable praline note in the taste.
Finish: The finish is long and rich with some citrus, chocolate, raisins and marzipan all lingering.
