Could do better. Superior to the standard Tullamore Dew, with an engaging sweetness which works well with the fruity pot still. Not bad.
Aged 12 Years
Year of Bottling
Republic of Ireland
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Firmer with some immediate pot still fruitiness. Quite grainy and spirity.
Palate: Decent pot still hardness with caramel and spice. Some malt-loaf sweetness, but too much caramel.
Finish: Medium length; the caramel disappointingly lingers but the vanilla and spices ensure complexity.
Comment: Could do better. Superior to the standard Tullamore Dew, with an engaging sweetness which works well with the fruity pot still. Not bad.
Nose: Perfumy. Grassy. Very grainy. Toasty. Warm.
Palate: Light, fruity, sweet.
Finish: A kiss of sherry sweetness.
Comment: Flirtatious, but not a lot to say for itself.
