Tullamore Dew 12 Year Old Special Reserve Irish Whiskey
40% ABV, 750 ml
2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition Gold Medal Winner
"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. A deep spice flavor 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. The finish is long and rich with some citrus, chocolate, raisins and marzipan all lingering."
"This blends bourbon and oloroso cask-matured elements drawn from every style of Irish whiskey. A mouthwatering dram with warm, creamy toffee, ripening yellow banana, wood spices, toasted coconut, spiced stewed apple, and cinnamon sticks. A delicious sip reveals a smooth medley of malt, chocolate, gentle spices, Brazil nut, and dried fruit, which sidles into a long finish of chocolate-covered raisins and deep, resonating spice. No reservations; this is special." Whisky Advocate 91 Points
