What I say
Sampled during the #TullamoreDEW tweet tasting hosted by Tullamore D.E.W. and @TheWhiskyWire on 7th March 2018.
My tasting notes:
- Appearance: Full gold (10/20), rare, slow, medium-fine tears leave fine legs
- Nose: Perfumed and floral briefly whisked through biscuit malt and into toasty wood, residual sticky apple and raisin strudel and a good cup of espresso coffee or piece of dark chocolate
- Taste: Pineapple upside down cake and date-filled sticky toffee pudding with rum and raisin ice cream, toasted oak wood, dried fruits, cocoa and coffee
- Finish: Long, bitter sweet, dark chocolate and raisins
A deliciously dark and complex whiskey, full of coffee, cocoa and oak wood notes.
Don’t take my word for it:
