  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 76 points Administrator

    Irish whiskey tends to be soft and 'green' in its style, and Tullamore Dew is no exception to this. Triple distillation has clearly diminished the roughness of the spirit, making it quite palatable. On the nose, there is not much happening. It's light and rather restrained with pronounced grassy and floral notes, mild fruitiness and a touch of vanilla. The taste is fresh, spicy and malty sweet, turning into a swift and straightforward finish that is characterized by zesty wood tannin bitterness. To conclude, it's a gentle but fairly simple blend without complexity.

  2. Kilo1 scored this whisky 59 points Expert Junior

    Quite soft whiskey, but the aroma is rustic, due to this it will not be enjoyed.

  6. Pyromann scored this whisky 55 points Expert Senior

    Nice whiskey for easy and not-demading drinking in a pub. One of the better options among cheaper blends.
    • Nose
      Honey, malt, honey sweetness. Freshness or "smell" of grain field, some notes of apple. Alcohol.
    • Taste
      Nice, malt-sweetness, grain field.

  7. Galacid scored this whisky 77 points Expert Junior

    Good solid Irish drinking whiskey. You can pick this up on a Tuesday evening and enjoy it without fear of breaking the bank. Yes it's a little bit rougher than your Redbreast 12 and Green Spot but I picked this up for £16 a bottle. You cannot complain at that price!

    In addition the name of this is Tullamore D.E.W. and not Dew

  8. Kostya scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Light, easy-going Irish whiskey
    • Nose
      Salted caramel, grain, nutmeg
    • Taste
      Light, spirity, walnuts, cinnamon, bourbon oak influence
    • Finish
      Short to medium, oak spices, salt

  9. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 60 points Connoisseur

    Somehow too sprightly for an Irishman.

  10. Brinker scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    Decent at the price, but nothing special - would prefer to use for it for the Irish coffee, than as a lone dram.
