Review: Tullamore Dew Single Malt 10 yr. OldNovember 1st, 2009
I first wrote about this new debut here back in August. Only 400 case for the U.S. in 2009. My formal review follows.
Tullamore Dew, 10 year old, 40%, $40
Tullamore Dew’s first single malt offering. A nice effort, too. Very much a different profile when compared to the rest of the Tullamore Dew line. Aged in bourbon, sherry, madiera and port casks. Vanilla-tinged malt, powdered sugar, light toffee, toasted marshmallow, with lush—yet contained—fruit (fruitcake, golden raisin, apricot in syrup). A firm, dry oak finish keeps all the sweetness and fruit in check.
