Tullamore Dew Original Irish Whiskey 12 year old
The early floral yet biscuit flavor reflects the grain whiskey, while the soft spicy notes can be attributed to the pot still whiskey in the blend. The citrus flavor is complemented by the malt. Finally notice the nutty or even marzipan note combined with distinctive vanilla in the finish - imparted by the sherry and bourbon casks used in maturation. The nose is light, sweet citrus and green apple combined with vanilla undertones. Tastes of early fresh fruit leads to a definite light spike followed by some toasted wood which evolves into a delicious vanilla sweetness. Put the glass down as you sense the almost buttery mellowness.
Bright yellow-gold, with a light vanilla aroma and flavor and soft, light feel. This blended whiskey is malleable and versatile, and best with some dilution and sweetness added, such as in a cocktail with a splash of vermouth or built tall with ginger ale.
