A top class addition to Tullamore DEW’s range, this 18 year single malt is a limited edition with only 2,500 bottles being produced but certainly whets one’s appetite for the exciting things to come now that Tullamore is back in the land of its name.
The whiskey was matured for the majority of its life in ex-bourbon barrels but then spent a final year in a mixture of sherry, madeira and port casks. This varied combination imparts a very interesting flavour profile. The nose holds the sherry and madeira scents with strong undertones of tobacco leaf. The palate contains strong hints of spice to go with the fortified wine sweetness as well as vanilla and notes of the previous tobacco.
