Tullamore D.E.W. is the second largest Irish whiskey in the world in the fastest growing category. Tullamore D.E.W. is not only triple distilled, but also a blend of all three types of Irish whiskies; pot still, malt, and grain. Created in 1829, the brand started in Tullamore, a town in the heart of Ireland, and was founded by Daniel E. Williams (D.E.W.), whose initials live on the bottle to this day. In 2014, Tullamore D.E.W. was brought back to its roots with the opening of a new distillery in the town of Tullamore, which returned whiskey production to the town 60 years after the original distillery closed its doors.
Tullamore D.E.W. (80 proof)
Appearance: Medium gold.
Aroma: Light, slightly fruity malt with a patina of oak.
Taste: Very much caramel and butterscotch forward flavor profile. Easy on the palate with a smooth and clean entry. After a minute some slight woodiness creeps in. Some peppery spice, but overall the malt is what dominates.
Finish: Medium-long with a chewy finish.
Overall: One of our favorite Irish whiskies. Perfect for a shot, blending with a mixer or as a light afternoon 50/50 beverage.
GSN Rating: A-
