Review: Tullamore Dew Finest Old Irish Whiskey (12 Years Old)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on March 10, 2017

irish-splash-sam_3025Tullamore Dew Finest Old Irish Whisky has been replaced in the Tullamore lineup by the new 12 Year Old Special Reserve, however bottles of the 12 Year Old Finest are still available (at least in my locale).

Tullamore Dew Whisky is composed of three different mature Irish Whiskies: Irish Pot Still Whiskey, which is distilled three times in a giant copper ‘pot’ still from a mash of malted barley as well as other cereal grains; Irish Grain Whiskey which is distilled on a multiple (two or three) column continuously operating ‘patent’ still from a corn (or maize) based mash with small amounts of malted barley; and Irish Malt Whiskey which is distilled three times on a pot still using only malted barley.

The Tullamore Dew Finest Old Irish Whisky was matured for a minimum of 12 years in oak barrels and bottled at 40% alcohol by volume.

Please enjoy my review which begins a short series of Irish Whiskey reviews which I will publish on the run-up to St. Patrick’s Day.

Chimo!
