Tullamore D.E.W. 14 year old, 41.3%

Price: $79 Issue: Fall 2016 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Following a 6 month period of finishing in the same four cask types as its older sibling (see above) we get a fruity nose of cherry lips, black currant juice, brambles, Cox's orange pippin, taffy candy, and the citrus acidity of oils squeezed from the peel. Oh, it's sweet, syrupy, and spicy; a fruity cocktail of apple and strawberry. Diminishing spice and bright rustic apples usher in a rewarding finish. A complex and distinctive recipe, for sure. €70
