tullamore-dew-18-year-old-single-malt-whiskey

What they say

Finished in a combination of bourbon, Port, Madeira and Oloroso Sherry casks. Only 20 barrels produced annually.

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

Overall

A deliciously dark and complex whiskey, full of coffee, cocoa and oak wood notes.

Score 89/100
