A mixture of grain whiskey and Irish malt whiskey, Tullamore Dew offers perhaps just a hint of the Irish coastline in its blend, more so than other blended Irish whiskies, which results in a slightly briny character to the nose. There are also notes of brown sugar, caramel, and oak present in this whiskey's bouquet. On the palate, some tasters detected a hint of iodine behind the sweet, malty notes at the forefront of this whiskey. Like most Irish blended whiskies, Tullamore Dew has a quick, almost ephemeral finish.
As Irish whiskies go, Tullamore Dew is a fine example of a classic blend. If you haven't tried it, I think you'll enjoy exploring Tullamore Dew. Recommended.
