The Irish pot still component is finished in Oloroso Sherry casks.
Aroma:Rich spice and nutty oakiness interlaced with a hint of tropical fruit
Flavours:A rich and complex full-bodied taste with fruit, nuts and spice and a lingering creamy fudge flavour
Character:Long, intensely rich and satisfying

The latest Tullamore Dew is a lethal combination of gorgeous and affordable. A bottle was kindly sent to me four days ago and I haven’t been able to stay out of it since. Lest I run out during the rigorous “sampling” phase I’ve already been to the Celtic Whiskey Shop to purchase another and I’m assailed by regret that I didn’t just hoover up whatever they had in the stockroom.
From time-to-time I’m reminded how good Irish blended whiskey can be, and it’s often Tullamore Dew doing the reminding. They have made the “triple blend” their own, meaning a combination of grain, malt and pot still whiskeys. Most other blends make do with just two of these.
This new whiskey begins with the standard 12-year old Tullamore Dew triple blend aged for a further 3 years in ex-bourbon casks. It’s then finished for 3 months in Trinidadian rum casks.
There are, you can see, a lot of threes in this story (the various components are triple-distilled too). Since regular Tullamore Dew is matured in ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks, the addition of rum here makes the new whiskey a “triple-wood”. Hence the name, “Trilogy”.
