Whisky Reviews for Tullamore Dew 1952 CA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.11 points

  1. magic_slim scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Difficult to rate - a lovely nose whereas taste and finish are polarising because of bitter and herbal aromas.
    • Nose
      Yummy rum and raisin chocolate and freshly ground coffee beans at first nosing. Rum essence and fresh vanilla pod. Despite its high alcohol  percentage it does not burn or attack the nostrils.
    • Taste
      Ouch, it's burning. What an alcohol shock! It takes some time until you can enjoy it. Oily and bittersweet - concentrated herbal tea and cough syrup, caraway seeds and liquorice.
    • Finish
      Very long, dominated by notes of old wood and concentrated bitter Mate tea.

    Nose: First impression - a bourbon in the first, "artificially" held part: glue, floor wax, furniture polish, turpentine and paint, then the percentage predominantly "more natural" part with tender, sweet honey aromas, marzipan and cereals. Now heavily burgeoning wood-laden aromas of dry boards. In addition, rubber, leather (saddlebag) and penetrating tart orange peel and again and again the interplay between the artificial and natural part. Very interesting!
    Taste: Oily, super-strong wood-turpentine-mint-herbal-floor polish cocktail with leather, orange peel and infinitely bitter, sweet and herbal infusions - with almost 70% a hammer blow.
    Finish: Super long - with mint leading and as in the nose: Artificiality against naturalness! Towards the end becoming sweeter with more herbs in peppery broth. The last lasting impression: bitter mint in combination with oak.
    Comment: What an Irishman! The nose does not notice the almost 70%, but on the tongue it hits like a grenade. Due to the constant changes between artificial and natural notes very difficult to evaluate. We are at 90 points - but what an aromatic enrichment !!!
    90 points (nose: 92 / taste: 90 / finish: 88)
