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.
