Tullamore D.E.W. 12 Special Reserve
Distillery: Tullamore D.E.W.
Expression: 12 Special Reserve
Category: Blended Whiskey
The Tullamore D.E.W. is an intriguing triple distilled blend of the three types of Irish whiskies, matured in bourbon and sherry casks for at least 12 years.
However, the pot still character takes center stage.
It’s quite a leap up in quality from the regular Tullamore D.E.W. and it certainly represents itself nicely in the NT$1,000 (US$30) range.
It took home the World Whiskies Award for Best Irish Whiskey 12 Years and Under in 2011 and after a few sips it’s easy to see why.
If you’re growing tired of smoked-out peaty scotches, give this dessert whiskey a go as and treat your taste buds to something new.
