Tullamore D.E.W. 18 Years Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey Review: A deliciously dark and complex whiskey, full of coffee, cocoa and oak wood notes. 89/100
Tullamore D.E.W. 14 Years Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey Review: Sweeter, fruitier and creamier than before but still delicious. 85/100
Quality needs to be unlocked here, too much spirit, spice and strong citrus neat to be overly enjoyable. A drop of water reveals the creamy toffee & banana from the official tasting notes. 81/100
A great introductory whiskey to the Tullamore range or ‘Blended’ Irish whiskey category. All very pleasant, perhaps a hint more wood smoke and spice than I remember on previous tastings? 83/100
Really quite special and an education to my Irish whiskey palate. This has all the subtleties of scotch single malt and has been married masterfully using the best qualities of each of the cask maturations involved. 86/100.
A nice integration of the sherry cask finish, well balanced but still quite light-bodied this has a gentle diversity and is incredibly smooth – a great sipping whisky! 84/100.
An unusual mixture of whisky and cider flavours that I quite enjoyed, reminiscent of Calvados in some ways and some of the more rustic Normandy ciders we have sampled. 85/100.
Sweet fruity and plenty of toffee, reasonable depth and body. Very drinkable and hard to find flaw with – not a bad introduction to Irish whiskey. 83/100
