Sku: 051033

Tullamore Dew 12 Year Old Special Reserve is a carefully crafted blend of old Irish whiskeys full of complex flavours, perfectly married to give a sophisticated drinking session full of depth, character and maturity. It is a deluxe blend with "a full, smooth, well-rounded whiskey, combining maltiness and pot still character. Sweet spicy notes overlay rich woody background from the bourbon casks used in maturation". The whiskies in the Tullamore Dew 12 Year Old Special Reserve have a very high concentration of pot still and malt in addition to grain whiskies, triple distilled between 12 and 15 years ago from unmalted as well as malted barley. It is a very fine aged whiskey with more complexity coming from the additional aging. All the whiskies in the blend are matured in old Bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks, slowly reaching their perfection. The sherry cask finish gives a sweet nuttiness to the taste. It also has pleasant spicy back notes.

Tasting notes
NOSE Early spice accompanied by red wine while a nice nuttiness follows. A hint of citrus can also be noted. TASTE A deep robust taste with spice and linseed oil giving a creamy body and powerful flavour. Sherry notes are evident with a real depth of cinnamon and vanilla. FINISH The finish is long and rich with a creamy sherry, dark chocolate and almond taste lingering.

Rating
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points (Apr 2014)
Precise and delicate on the nose with honey, coffee grounds and almond butter shining through. Very fresh on the palate showing brighter flavors of ripe plum, preserved peach and candied orange peel. These flavors last into a well-structured and slightly smoky finish. Chairman’s Trophy
