Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whiskey differently from me.
17th March is St Patrick’s Day, in preparation for this I’ll be posting tasting notes for a selection of Irish whiskies to help everyone get in the spirit!
Vanilla, custard, a touch of oak, some fruit underneath which becomes mare apparent as it’s left to open up giving definite apple.
Oak, sweet although not creamy as I’d expected from the nose, more fresh, vanilla, slight spice and some more fruit again.
Sweet, vanilla and fruit.
I haven’t tried Tullamore in some years now, when I last did it was at Whisky Live Dublin at a Tullamore D.E.W. master class – back when it was DEW and not D.E.W. To be perfectly honest I have no recollection of what it tasted like back then but I was pleasantly surprised by it this time around considering it’s price. This is a simple yet well made blend that is most certainly value for money. Well worth checking out if you’re looking for an easy to drink Irish whisky.
Taken from The Tullamore Website.
Light, sweet citrus and green apple combined with vanilla undertones.
Early fresh fruit leads to a definite light spike followed by some toasted wood which evolves into a delicious vanilla sweetness.
Put the glass down as you sense the almost buttery mellowness.
